Senior Execs Dig Broadband
from the no-surprise-there... dept
Well, it looks like we may finally be getting past the era when senior execs still needed their emails printed out by an assistant, so they can read them on paper. 99% of senior executives surveyed now use the internet at work, and 97% use it at home. In fact, 77% have broadband access at home, and many use PDAs and wireless technologies (both handheld devices and wireless networking) in their homes. When they're online, it seems like they do just about what you'd expect them to do: a fair amount of time is spent doing email. When they surf the web, they're most likely to be reading business news (which, one hopes, includes a daily visit to Techdirt). They also have no problems buying things online, with approximately 80% buying airline tickets and books or reserving hotel rooms online. It seems clear that the era of the completely clueless senior exec when it comes to the internet is quickly fading away.
