Changes at AltaVista, none for the betterFrom Nicholas on 25 April '99
Several changes to AV, some mentioned on this board:
1. paid listings on the way
2. Compaq (parent company) pushing fast towards an IPO
3. MSN is now a major customer for AV results
4. Louis Monier (head of tech) left a couple of weeks ago,
It adds up to the distinct possiblility that AV may radically
deteriorate over the next few months.
