[url=www.ocn.ne.jp/english/]OCN[/url] stands for Open Computer Network, and is an internet service provider in Japan that is also a NTT Communications company read: old monopoly.

I received a big long e-mail this morning from the folks at OCN. They went to great lengths to tell me that the old [url=navi.ocn.ne.jp]OCN navi[/url] service will cease operations at the end of June 2001. However, before I could be overcome by despair, they noted that a new service has been available since March 2001, called [url=search.ocn.ne.jp]OCN Search[/url]. OCN Search is yet another LookSmart powered directory.

What does all this mean? Well, there's one less SE/directory in Japan as of June. It's been replaced with a pure LookSmart directory (ho-hum).
