Coordinators - Roger Hicks [RHICKS@clear.co.nz] and                                                        Taeha Park [taeha@nuri.net]

The theme is about real experiences and issues of trying to making a profit out of the 'net. The intention is that it has a business or commercial focus and discusses issues such as:

       The business model used and how successful it was
       The planning and implementation issues
       How the service or product was structured and/or evolved
       Was it based on non-'net product or service or developed from scratch
       How much was out-sourced
       Advertising, promotion and other marketing issues
       How the business justification for doing this structured
       Was there a solid justification or based on a hunch?
       Where is the profit or revenue being made and where are the real costs
       Was it as successful as planned, more so/less so and why?

The intention is to provide experiences will come from people with experiences in the region. The sessions are being planned to look at issues such as:
