About the author, administrator, publisher, updater, webmaster

Keith Archibald Forbes  Forbes Clan

All the 145+ web files of Bermuda Online (BOL) are authored, written and updated solely by Bermudian-British author and internationally accredited socio-economic and travel writer/editor Keith Archibald Forbes (pictured, top). Email him directly at admin@bermuda-online.org for Bermuda-related matters shown in this website. Or, for urgent matters only on or just before Bermuda Public Holidays at keithforbes01@btinternet.com, always with a copy to admin@bermuda-online.org. With his wife Lois also disabled and Bermudian, he is a Member of the Society of Authors, see http://www.societyofauthors.org/node/67581. He began Bermuda Online (BOL) in 1990. His involvement in Bermuda and Boston, MA as a member of what were then the Bermuda Macintosh Users Group (BERMUG) and the Boston Macintosh Users Group (BMUG) prompted him to use the World Wide Web (WWW) to fullest possible advantage. In Bermuda, he helped lead the move to pressure what was then Cable and Wireless in Bermuda  to make the Internet in Bermuda more accessible and affordable. Today, long after it was purchased in 1991 from Keith by The Royal Gazette daily newspaper in Bermuda, BOL is still the only major website about Bermuda with everything including website administration and web-mastering done completely in-house. Keith tries to ensure Bermuda Online (BOL) offers a high professional standard when there are no industry wide regulations offered by any jurisdiction that govern the integrity, accountability and legal responsibility or require disclosure of beneficial ownership of websites, nor are there any authorities within those jurisdictions that prohibit the misuse or scattering of fraudulent or nuisance or annoying  emails. Keith, as a registered author, member of international professional societies, advocate and activist for consumers, the disabled and elderly, hopes to see authorities worldwide enact meaningful legislation to correct misuse of the World Wide Web and social media and make users much more accountable and punishable for fraud or copyright misuse, etc.

Keith is a former member of Bermuda's Broadcasting Commission, Consumer Affairs Board, Board of Education, Junior Chamber International, Reserve Constabulary, Bermuda Regiment, Kiwanis and more. Keith, never far from his MIFI, laptop, iPad and digital camera, spends more than 28 hours a week, 7 days a week including public holidays, in administering, maintaining, updating and web-mastering BOL files and promptly replying to relevant emails. BOL has grown hugely in the past 11 years. In September 2005 BOL's size was 35.4 Mb. On September 30, 2016, BOL's size was 301 Mb, comprising 2932 items including 145 sub-sites on Bermuda, copyrighted photos and graphics, and still growing.
