Who will make big news in the business world this year? Who will emerge from relative obscurity to become a major player? To start the new year, Times business reporters selected people from their beats who they believe will be among those to watch in 2000--in Southern California, across the country and around the world. Some are well known, having made big news in previous years. Others are not exactly household names but nevertheless are likely to make a major impact in their fields.

July 9, 1995 | Dawn Raffel, Dawn Raffel is the author of the story collection, "In the Year of Long Division" (Alfred A. Knopf)
To read this novel is to enter into a night of webby mysteries. Simple as the premise is--a man lies in bed awaiting the return of his wife--it quickly opens into a dangerous adventure of mind and of heart, of intellect and passion, of language and eros. The narrator, John Chambers--born rich, bred to heady disenchantment--is a failed rhetorician, or rather, a man failed by words, by way of having been a boy failed by family and an adolescent failed by sex.

George W. Bush came calling. So did British Prime Minister Tony Blair and China's President, Jiang Zemin. All sought the counsel of John Chambers, chief executive of Cisco Systems, which a year ago reigned as the most valuable corporation on Earth. Chambers' lofty goal was to wire the world for the Internet. And for a decade Cisco surged to prominence by selling arcane hardware that directs the Internet's trillions of messages and images each week like an army of electronic traffic cops.

The pay television industry, under growing threat from the Internet, disclosed plans to prevent technology companies from luring away its customers. Cisco Systems Inc. showcased a new cable TV set-top box at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas that would marry Web video with traditional TV programming. The device, unveiled Wednesday, would help cable operators maintain their lock on the living room amid mounting competition from companies whose devices or Internet-based services would allow consumers to "cut the cord" on their cable subscriptions in favor of watching TV online.
