I am constantly amazed and intrigued by what is being done via the Internet. In Practical Accountant, we report on how creative some firms are incorporating the Internet into their operations and going way beyond the proverbial virtual firm brochure. My guess is that creativity is stimulated by how others are using the Internet.

Here’s some Web food for thought in that regard: • There are now sites that help you find items on eBay where brand names are misspelled and, therefore, there will be fewer bidders. • Prior to the Kentucky Derby, you had access to a chart of the past performances of all the horses that were running and were able to view videos of past races. • A funeral home in England provides a live Internet feed of the funeral so mourners who can’t make it to the funeral home can attend virtually.
