ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the prospects of the Internet industry and its role in the information services. These days, in the big, wide world that stretches far beyond the environs of the traditionals, experts measure willingness and ability to change with the yardstick of Internet experience. Corporations, government agencies, computer retailers, publishing and broadcast media, citizens in the street-everyone gets the big questionnaire. Are you on the Internet. Many traditional information industry players still do not participate in the wonders of the Internet. Perhaps individual employees of database producers and search services have personal passwords connecting them to the 30 million Inter net users, but their companies often still watch and wait warily. Intermediary searchers could scan results as electronic messages, then carom them on to clients with a quick digital ricochet. The reluctance to deliver results over the Net may change as more search services switch away from connect-time pricing. Under traditional pricing schemes, the longer the connection, the larger the take. These days, more and more search services have switched to flat fees of some sort either subscription fees for service or per output fixed prices.
