Computer & the Internet

Last updated:  6 April 2001

  • Atlas of Cyberspaces - "an atlas of maps and graphic representations of the geographies of the new electronic territories of the Internet, the World-Wide Web and other emerging Cyberspaces"
  • BrowserTune and Hotspots - a web-site offered by Fred Langa, the eminent PC expert
  • Chaos Computer Club Germany - the famous computer hackers who proved that electronic telecommunication is NOT safe at all
  • Computer Museum History Center - "established in 1996, the Computer Museum History Center is a non-profit entity dedicated to the preservation and celebration of computing history"
  • Computer virus: Myths and hoaxes
  • Denounce News - exactly the kind of news you would expect from a company calling itself "Denounce", hilarious stuff
  • Digital Divide - a web-site of PBS on its program on the effects of computerization on social (in-)equality; this is by far the best web-site I have seen offering access to resources on the subject
  • Electronic Frontier Foundation - a non-profit civil liberties organization working in the public interest to protect privacy, free expression, and access to public resources and information online, as well as to promote responsibility in new media
  • Electronic postcards - ever wanted to send someone something special? Try this site, they even offer rock-music cards ... crazy!
  • Ethics in Computing - excellent meta-site offering access to a wide range of resources
  • History of the Internet - a fascinating web-site written by Gregory R. Gromov
  • Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) - "the non-profit corporation that was formed to assume responsibility for the IP address space allocation, protocol parameter assignment, domain name system management, and root server system management functions previously performed under U.S. Government contract by IANA and other entities"
  • Internet Law Library - "features extensive summaries of court decisions shaping the law of the web; providing facts, analysis and pertinent quotes from cases of interest to those involved in New Media addressing copyright, trademark, dilution and other intellectual property issues, jurisdiction, linking, framing, meta tags, clip-art, defamation, domain name, e-mail, encryption, gambling, click-wrap agreements, shrink-wrap licenses, spamming and other subjects indexed below. To paraphrase Jack Webb, "just the law ma'am, and nothing but the law."
  • Internet Society - "a non-profit, non-governmental, international professional membership organization that brings diverse interests and factions together to hammer out reasonable solutions that generate progress and growth for the Internet. Its more than 100 organizational and 7,000 individual members from more than 150 countries represent a veritable who's who of the Internet community"
  • The Jargon File - "a comprehensive compendium of hacker slang illuminating many aspects of hackish tradition, folklore, and humor"
  • Leo's Home - Leo is Hans-Georg Doerr, a German computer expert, who offers advice for many problems you never thought you had, and even for those that sound familiar to you - rich, and sometimes funny, resources, check them out
  • LivingInternet - "the Net's most comprehensive source about the Internet" - this is an excellent resource
  • The Microsoft Lexicon - "Getting granular with Microspeak: Working at Microsoft (especially for people who come from journalism and the entertainment industry like many of us at Cinemania and Music Central) is a lot like passing hrough the looking glass. Microsoft is a distinctive world with a culture (including bizarre customs and rituals) and a language of its own. (Unfortunately, this culture is rapidly becoming more mainstream as the company itself becomes more traditionally corporate and less colorful; "The Suits" are definitely taking over...) For those of us who love words (as opposed to code), Microsoft is a Wonderland of bizarre and exotic terms and phrases, not all of which resemble English as we (use to) know it"
  • howard rheingold's electric minds - an exciting collection of web-sites
  • Smileys - a whole lot of ;-)
  • W3C HTML Validation Service - this tool tells you whether your webpage complies with W3C standards - tell you what: mine don't do, and it's a shame, of course, but it's also heaps of work to comply with their standards
  • Web Developer's Virtual Library
  • Zen and the Art of the Internet - "a web-site intended to introduce a user to the benefits and facilities available through the Internet"
