Bow Wave 10 Years Ago-Issue 63
Our first look backwards to the Bow Waves of yesteryear found us examining the plans in Japan for future transport infrastructure projects--the link still works--and moves down at LLoydsListDCN in Australia to move some of their output onto the web--quite far sighted of them:-
The Quarterpoints Column In Lloyd's List today attempts to frame the emergence of e-mail and e-mail based publications in our industry as in some ways the antithesis of the high cost,transactional end of the internet typified by the dot.coms with their high monthly burn rates and their often overreaching ambitions.
It so happens that on the same day in Australia,the people over at Lloyds List Daily Commercial News are replacing one of their three paper appearances during the week with an on-line version of this paper aimed at the shipping and transport world down under and edited by the cerebral Kevin Chinnery. The electronic version of Lloyd's List DCN will include news, features and special reports; The List, Shipping Guide, classified advertising, container availability as advertised by depots, casualty reports and daily exchange rates. Subcribers will also be receiving a daily e-mail bulletin giving breaking news.
