Web and CyberCulture

There are many web sites that will give a feel for the Internet and Web culture. What exactly is web culture? It is all about links, information, entertainment, education, exploration but most of all communication. It can be exciting, too slow, too fast, cool, wow, frustrating, enlightening, and fun! There are no rules but there is Netiquette. Why would anyone want to use the web when they can just watch TV? Please, come on, talk about boring...TV? What could be more booooooring. Well, just check out the web sites on this page to get a better idea of what the web is all about?

A good place to get started is The WWW3 is mostly in text form, but so all the best books. HotWired is much more lively and cutting edge. There are sites on the web people won't like and other sites that may become indispensible. For education, how can the Library of Congress be beat? CNN news, Nando news, and all the world's news organizations can't be wrong. From GORP to ESPN, there are all matter of sports sites. To the White House and the FEDworld, all politics is on the web.

Families will not be disappointed with ParentSoup to children's museums like ExploraNet. Shoppers must visit Amazon Books to Land's End and to get cured try the
Mayo Family Clinic. Budding scientists will love the Science Magazine Online.

Worldwide exploration like the Discovery Channel, National Geographic, will expand your mind. will take folks to Africa, Asia, Europe, Australia and to the Americas, all the United Nations are represented.

Live Music, from Paris to Houston. Before leaving your PC to travel, check out the maps at Mapquest and the weather. Monitor your finances at Bloomberg before departure with Lonely Planet. Look up a friend's phone number or challenge them to a game.

For web travel, start with the search engines such as Yahoo, Altavista, Excite, Infoseek, Hotbot or Lycos. Get the latest browser at Netscape or Microsoft and don't forget to grab a favorite plug-in. With Apple, IBM, and Compaq, a new computer may be in the works. So go ahead! Explore the web culture, then create your own home page!
