Some websites do not show who owns and operates them. We do so, in full compliance with the ethics, codes of conduct and methodologies of the much-respected Society of Authors and American Society of Authors and Writers. Details are below:
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 email@example.com for Bermuda-related matters shown in this website. Or, for urgent matters only on or just before Bermuda Public Holidays at firstname.lastname@example.org, always with a copy to email@example.com. 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. 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 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. He 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 December 1, 2016, BOL's size was 304 Mb, comprising 2940 items including 145 sub-sites on Bermuda, copyrighted photos and graphics, and still growing.
Bermuda Online (BOL), still published independently, was acquired by The Royal Gazette Ltd (RG) from the above author . The RG is the only daily newspaper of Bermuda, see http://www.royalgazette.com/section/?template=6. Its present cost per issue is $1.50. BOL provides numerous web files on Bermuda of the type not covered on the RG's website. The RG is independent of any political party and is the principal (more than 85%) independent and impartial source of all offline and online news about Bermuda. The RG, Bermuda Business Directory and more are owned by Bermuda Press (Holdings) Ltd (BPHL), see http://investing.businessweek.com/research/stocks/private/people.asp?privcapId=20458943 and http://www.bsx.com/CompanyDisplay.asp?CompanyID=127, of 13 Addendum Lane, Pembroke HM 07, Bermuda. Jonathan Howes is the CEO of BPHL. In July 2014 when the Bermuda Sun bi-weekly newspaper folded after 50 years, BPHL also acquired the Island Press and Bermuda.com websites.
