Geoffrey R. Gerdes, of the Board's Division of Reserve Bank Operations and Payment Systems, prepared this article, with assistance from Kathy C. Wang.

It describes methods and technologies to allow machines to understand the meaning - or "semantics" - of information on the World Wide Web 1 .

UK E-tailers Cite Transaction Costs as Biggest Frustration
68% of Online Retailers Believe Payment Charges and Technical Glitches are More of a Problem to Their Business Than Fraud The high cost associated with payment acceptance charges has become the biggest single pressure point for UK e-commerce, ahead of website technical glitches and card fraud. At least, this is according to the E-Business Benchmark Report, an annual survey of over 2,000 UK-based internet retailers conducted by payments services provider, Sage Pay. With payments fraud unexpectedly not making the top spot, the findings suggest that most online businesses are confident that they can keep fraud at bay.

ICKLER: Battles Back For 13th At Iowa Speedway
Brian Ickler may not have had the racetruck to beat in Sunday's Lucas Oil 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Iowa Speedway in Newton. But he had arguably the next-best through most of the first half of the race. That's when it went all for naught as the 24-year-old from San Diego, driving in his third Truck Series event in the No. 18 Toyota Tundra for Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM) and the 14th of his career, got turned from behind on a restart just past the halfway point in today's 205-lap race, fell two laps off the pace, and used the rest of the day to battle his way back onto the lead lap and settle ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

How do I set up an e-commerce site that accepts photo uploads and ...
I've been asked to set up a website for a client who wants to custom-print an item using photos uploaded by customers. They need to accept credit card payments. As one option, I am considering setting up a custom front-end for Shopify , but I'm not sure whether that's overkill, or whether they can accept an uploaded picture sent as part of the order information. What's the simplest/best way to do this? My PHP/Javascript skills are rather rudimentary, but I'd like to learn more. Should I try to do something from scratch, or are there good solutions out there already? It seems like there would be a few ...
Handling Credit Card Payments
I was pretty unhappy with most of the so called 'solutions ' out there that always seemed to limit what you can and can't do with your site.

I really would like to have a 'professional' deal with security and payment processing, and I've been looking at SHOPSITE. Which is a couple of thousand to get installed.
