network analysis can help us make sense of the Internet industry.

The current issue of the "Industry Standard - the magazine of the internet
economy" [Jan 24, 2000] has an interesting article on the key players in the
internet industry -- "The Web's Gatekeepers". In the print version [page
204] they show the partial ego-networks of the 4 'gatekeetpers': AOL-TW,
AT&T, Microsoft, Yahoo. The ego-networks reveal some of the strategic
alliances these 4 companies have formed.

internet industry network of some 50+ players. The network is displayed in
