¡°Adoption of Internet-Based Marketing Channels by Small-
and Medium-Sized Manufacturers¡±

J©ªrn Flohr Nielsen, University of Aarhus, Denmark
Viggo H©ªst, University of Aarhus, Denmark
Niels Peter Mols, University of Aarhus, Denmark

This paper analyzes factors influencing manufacturers¡¯ adoption of
Internet-based marketing channels using models based on marketing channel
and organizational innovation theory. Survey data from 1,163 Danish,
Finnish, and Swedish manufacturers form the empirical basis for testing
the models using LISREL analysis. The results stress that adoption of
Internet-based marketing is influenced by willingness to cannibalize, by
management support, by market pressure, and by a firm¡¯s knowledge of IT.

There is mounting evidence of an increasing gender gap in computer
education, which translates into a similar gap in the information
technology workforce in the United States. This study investigates whether
gender difference in computer usage is carried over to Internet usage.
This paper focuses on exploring gender differences in the use of the
Internet and the types of application people pursue online. The study
examines if there are fewer females using the Internet than males and
explores how gender difference plays a role in using the Internet for
information search, interpersonal communication, entertainment, education,
shopping, and personal finance.

¡°Relationships Between Supply Characteristics and Buyer-Supplier Coupling
in E-Procurement: An Empirical Analysis¡±

Ravi Nath, Creighton University, USA
Rebecca Angeles, University of New Brunswick Fredericton, Canada

This study explores the resource dependency and relational exchange
theories of understanding firms¡¯ participation in e-procurement, and
seeks to determine the degree to which the resource dependency theory
variables  supply importance, supply complexity, supply market dynamism,
and availability of alternatives  affect information exchange and
operational linkages, and the relational exchange theory variables.

¡°Privacy Protection via Technology: Platform for Privacy Preferences

Noushin Ashrafi, University of Massachusetts, USA
Jean-Pierre Kuilboer, University of Massachusetts, USA

Increasingly, the Internet is used as a common tool for communication,
information gathering, and online transactions. Information privacy is
threatened as users are expected to reveal personal information without
knowing the consequences of sharing their information. To that end,
research groups, both from academia and industry, have embarked on the
development of privacy enhancement technologies. One such technology is
Platform for Privacy Preferences (P3P). Developed by the World Wide Web
Consortium (W3C), P3P has a number of prominent stakeholders such as IBM,
Microsoft, and AT&T. Yet, there is little published information on what
P3P is and to what extent it is being adopted by e-business organizations.
This study is exploratory in nature and aims at addressing these
questions; in particular, the authors look at P3P both as a new technology
and as a standard.
