Abstract: The analyses presented in this page document that Yahoo!, a primary gateway to the Web and not vastly different from other widely used web portals, has morphed over the past ten years. Online content, such as the Yahoo! home page, is an expression of the dominant underlying social structure. Data for the paper come from one hundred randomly selected Yahoo! home pages from 1996 through 2005. Over 18,800 individual links on these pages were coded according to the categories of online activity they support. Two primary patterns emerge. First, there has been a significant decline in the links that present users with the opportunity to self-select from topically oriented directories of information. Second, there is a proportional increase in the number of commercially oriented links consumers as well as producers, especially small businesses that are seen primarily as consumers. These shifts are in part the result of improved technologies developed to handle the magnitude of information on the web. However, the shifts also support efforts to commercial the web, efforts that are a “natural” outgrowth of the underlying market-oriented social structure.

Abstract: In the pre-Internet era, the role of news providers in the media market was clearly defined. Media companies produced content as suppliers of news and information and competed with other media firms in their geographic market for audience and/or advertising share in either inter- or intra-competition scenarios. But the Internet has brought about revolutionary changes to this media landscape. One major change is the rise of content aggregators. While traditional news firms are still struggling with the economics of their online ventures, these news aggregators have become a major source of online news for American audiences. This exploratory study, through an online survey of 1,143 respondents, empirically examines the relationship between use of three major news aggregators—Yahoo, Google, and Huffington Post— and 13 major news media outlets operated by print, broadcast, cable and electronic news media. The goal is to offer an extensive overview of competition among key players in contemporary news ecology. Findings of this study suggest a symbiotic relationship between all three news aggregator sites and 13 major news outlets across different news industries. Such findings are at odds with industry sentiment, or hostility toward news aggregators, and news organizations are encouraged to reassess their relationship with news aggregators in the attempt to find better revenue models rather than casting blames that have no empirical basis.

Abstract: This paper argues that the fundamental question, in the wake of new types of international disputes over the Internet, is what would be the most reasonable way of deciding international jurisdiction over a Web site when free speech is at stake. The exploration of the issue of personal jurisdiction throughout offline and online cases in the United States led a judgment that the effects test can be an appropriate legal framework of international jurisdiction over the Internet when free speech is at stake. The applications of the effects test to the Yahoo! and the iCraveTV cases led to the conclusion that these cases were decided incorrectly.

Abstract: There are currently over 20,000 Yahoo Group communities. People have different reasons for seeking membership to an online community such as a Yahoo Group. Some join as a form of self-help, counseling and support, whereas, others join for entertainment and fellowship. The purpose of this paper is to examine one online community that was formed in 2005 to support, inform and educate families waiting to adopt from Asia. Originally the group included hundreds of families from America, Canada, Europe, Ireland, Australia and the United Kingdom. All families submitted their paperwork in the same month and traveled to bring their children home in 2006. Today, the group although reduced to 40 families remains intact. The author, a member of the group, examines how online community culture forms, what factors effect change, and how the moderator plays a role in creating and supporting the desired culture. An analysis of conversation themes over the years is provided.
