Abstract

Purpose – The aim is to review developments on the internet, especially those of general cybernetic interest. Design/methodology/approach – A current persistent type of unsolicited e‐mail is described, with speculation about its motivation. An initiative for a European Digital Library is reviewed, as are also arrangements for digital tours of the Hermitage art collection in St Petersburg and of the Alhambra in Spain and a major mosque in Istanbul. The last two demonstrate an important advance in the technology applicable in such displays. Reference is also made to a major advance in computer technology, particularly useful in portable machines. Findings – These are reports on some current developments. Practical implications – The discussion of investment spam may suggest studies of market dynamics. The other topics bear on practical issues of data management and retrieval, interactive visual display and computer technology. Originality/value – It is hoped this is a valuable periodic review.
