    Abstract

    The rapid development of computer connectivity and the role of the Internet in the emergence of new e-commerce markets have increasingly attracted the attention of national governments and international agencies. Hyperbole aside, the astonishing reach of these tools has changed the way a large part of the world communicates and does business. It may be too early to evaluate claims that this medium ushers in an irresistible phase of a global 'information revolution' and, with it, a 'new economy'. However, we can be certain that with the erosion of traditional barriers to communication, our concepts of time and place have irrevocably changed and the process of 'globalisation' has accelerated.
