Communications of the IBIMA , 2008,
Abstract: In order to keep up with fierce competition in the forever distributed, global and virtual business world, big name companies like IBM, Toyota, etc. have ventured into exploiting the potential of Massively Multiplayer Online Role-playing Games (MMORPG) technology, via Second Life, to reinvent themselves. Investigating existing business models in Second Life, a virtual world, to see whether the avatar-based commerce is a hype or a real potential. In this preliminary study, based on the tool, Internet Business Graph Analysis Models (IBGAM) developed by the author in 2003, the analysis of the business models of 14 avatar-based business unveiled that the avatar-based commerce, though growing rapidly, it may not be roaring like the Internet businesses in the 1990’s due to a fundamental structural constraint in running avatar-based business, as they have to run with the restricted tools, services, and rules provided by the owners of virtual worlds. These restrictions are a major deviation from the Internet, which has no owner. The author also found that indirect business models such as brokerage, e-auction, etc. are hard to be found in the virtual worlds. Consequently, direct exchange business models will most likely flourish in virtual worlds and avatar-based business may face some constraints.

Abstract: The most intense and catastrophic hurricanes on record to hit the Florida Keys during 1900 to 1950 were in 1919, and 1935. From 1950 to 2000, the most intense hurricanes to hit or affect the Florida Keys were in 1960, 1965, and 1992. In this paper, we will present a brief parametric analysis of the hurricanes that have hit the Florida Keys in the last 100 years. This analysis will include the descriptive statistics, best fit probability distribution of the latitude of the catastrophic hurricanes and a confidence interval that detects the average latitude of hurricanes (category 3 or higher) which have hit the Florida Keys in the last 100 years.

As with the previous study we report on a desk survey of 300 randomly selected business Web sites and on the results of an electronic mail questionnaire sent to the sample companies. An extended version of this paper has been submitted to the International Journal of Information Management
Business use of the World-Wide Web
C. Cockburn,T.D. Wilson
Information Research: an international electronic journal , 1995,
Abstract: Two methods were employed in this study of the use of the World Wide Web by business: first, a sample of 300 businesses with Web sites, across a wide range of industry types, was examined, by selecting (rather than sampling) companies from the Yahoo! directory. The sites were investigated in relation to several areas - the purpose of the Web site, the use being made of electronic mail and the extent to which multi-media was being utilised. In addition, any other aspects of the site which were designed to make it more interesting to potential customers were also noted. Secondly, an electronic-mail questionnaire was sent to 222 of the 300 companies surveyed: that is, those that provided an e-mail address for contact. 14 were returned immediately due to unknown addresses or technical problems. Of the remaining 208, 102 replies were received, five of which were of no relevance, leaving 97 completed questionnaires to examine; a response rate of 47%, which is surprisingly good for a survey of this kind.

A business to change the world – moral responsibility in textbooks for International Economics  [PDF]
Pernilla Andersson,Johan ?hman,Leif ?stman
Utbildning & Demokrati : Tidsskrift f?r Didaktik och Utbildningspolitik , 2011,
Abstract: This article presents an empirical analysis of textbooks for International Economics in upper secondary schools with a focus on moral responsibility for environment and society. The purpose is to analyse the meanings offered to students regarding the scope of taking moral responsibility in relation to the role of a business person. Four different meanings are formulated as a result of the study: one states that a business only can take responsibility inorder to obey laws and respond to consumer demands, a second and third meaning imply that, a business can make demands, to different extents, on subcontractors. A fourth meaning includes that a business (apart from making profit) also can be a tool for change. The different meanings are discussed in relation to different functions of education (Biesta 2008, S fstr m 2005) and Education for Sustainable Development. The main argument is that a tool forchange-meaning, contributing to a subjectification function of education, ought to have an increased space in education, if we want students who are engaged in sustainability issues regarding the environment and the society also to see a future working within the business world. This is equally important if we want business students to see a future working for sustainable development.
