http://www.garlic.com/~lynn/95.html#13

two of the people in the above mentioned meeting left a year or so later to join a small client/server startup responsible for something called the "commerce server". We were called in as consults because the startup wanted to payment transactions on the server. Part of the effort was something called the payment gateway ... some past posts:

and the effort is now frequently referred to as electronic commerce.

post regarding recent checkfree attack and reference to "Web Security hasn't moved since 1995"

and related from today:
