extraordinary

every now and then we run into websites that are very extraordinary.
Many of these sites are located in the special subject areas.
Those that are difficult to house in those areas are located in this separate page...

Any comments, questions??

American Authors on the WWW.
A very extensive, most interesting site.
The World Wide Web History Project
a collaborative effort to record and publish the history of the World Wide Web and its roots in hypermedia and networking. Its founding principle is to work together in as open and cooperative a manner as possible in producing a definitive history and historical archive of the Web. Explicit goals are to provide accurate and balanced history with input from as many sources as possible and maximum access to the results worldwide. The Project is currently taking steps to incorporate as a non-profit organization.
To date the Project has used two primary research methods: personal recollections, either taken down in interviews or recorded on their own time by sources, and archival research. We have been videotaping nearly all interviews in the new digital video (DVC) format. Besides offering CD-quality sound and near-broadcast quality video, this format makes it easy to output still shots from video.
RESEARCH-IT
a very special general research tool....just visit!!
Welkom jonge vrienden!
Very nice site on famous subject in Dutch literature!
VOICE OF THE SHUTTLE:
TECHNOLOGY OF WRITING PAGE. A extremely interesting and very sophisticated site. Go see yourself!
SIMON & SCHUSTER WORLD WIDE WEB SITE:
Beautifully designed site. In spite of our policy not to add links to New Books we just had to make a link to this site because of it's design and graphic properties. (Prentice Hall Publishing Company, another Simon and Schuster company with an attractively designed website)
THE NETHERLANDS DESIGN INSTITUTE:
The Netherlands Design Institute is a 'think-and-do tank' which identifies new ways by which design may contribute to the economic and cultural vitality of the community; it develops scenarios about the future, and undertakes research projects to test them. The Institute's end-product is ideas, knowledge and relationships: these help companies, designers, and researchers improve their capacity for innovation. The Institute was established in 1993 as an independent foundation which receives core funding from the Dutch government. Its building, the former Fodor Museum on Keizersgracht, is provided by the City of Amsterdam. A full-time staff of eleven people supports the research, manages projects, and ensures that ideas and information are disseminated. The Institute is an international meeting point between design, industry and culture.
OPENLUCHT MUSEUM,
Arnhem, The Netherlands. Very attractive museum, showing it's latest addition: old-age streetcars and a complete track through the museum gardens. Worthwhile visiting. Museum is located near the city of Arnhem in quiet part of the Netherlands with many surrounding woods.
INTERESTING PLACES FOR KIDS:
A really fantastic site. It took 12 pages to print the text in the page. Numerous sites interesting for kids. Kids can find their way around the web, go to art and literature, music, museums and exhibits, arts and crafts, toys and games, movies and TV shows, to websites set up by (or for) kids, and much more. Being a father and grandfather (now you know!) myself I love this site! It will be one of my top bookmarks (adults will love it...)
THE HISTORY OF PRINTING:
Manuscripts, Books, and Maps: The Printing Press and a Changing World. A really great site and starting point for all those that are interested in information on this subject. A really impressive piece of work.
ART HISTORY RESOURCES ON THE WEB,
by Chris Witcombe (Sweet Briar College). Metalist of art history resources on the web compiled for Witcombe's students. A most impressive list of links. Will lead to over 20 pages of text if you print the complete list. Part One of the list is grouped according to period and Part Two according to categories. Here you can get your masters degree on-line. A great site!
THE POP-UP WORLD OF ANN MONTANARO,
with beautifull images (we like the butterfly) and links to sites displaying information on pop-up books, and a Concise History of Pop-Up and Movable Books. Its a treat!
