The Mercury Project was a classic site which is still a must see. This is the newer mo'better version of the same idea. What is so special about the Tele-Garden is that it actually does something. You push a button somewhere in Japan and tend a garden in California.
A sense of place. Worlds Chat helps you transfer your conciousness into a place that seems real. You walk the hallways, pass people, ride on escalators and maybe stop to talk. Picture IRC and DOOM in a blender.
Stroud's Consumate Winsock Apps

"Berserkistanís Jim Bartlett is in Bosnia to cover Operation Joint Endeavor for this web site. Equipped with a tricked-out laptop, cameras, an audio recorder and two pairs of jeans. Bartlett is a war correspondent, that rare breed that likes to cover the "bang-bang" as it's known in the trade. He is the first journalist to cover a war exclusively for the Internet." (from the Journal page)
You gotta check out 'Cowboy Jimmy' because he makes you wanna grab your laptop, go to some confusing area of the world, and tell it like you see it. Jimmy is 28 years old, looks younger, and has the fire in his belly for the web. This is the power of the decentralized media.
Computers:Internet:Interesting Devices Connected to the Net
Yahoo! is a very good overview list that doesn't put you through page after page of selection to get to the coo. This is a good example of a level of their database, the level of stuff that sort of does something.
The NPAC Visible Human Viewer
JAVA is like crack for your web browser - it's the lastest hottest thing, but it sucks and craches your computer. There is one JAVA app that actually works, though. The basic idea is a little weird though: Some convict was executed by society. Then his body was frozen. They took a picture of the top of his frozen head, then sliced a millimeter off and shot again until they reached the tip of his toes. This JAVA page lets you view the whole archive. Enjoy!

This fellow is in it for more than the visual beauty.
Chatting With Martha Siegel
Hissssssss Booooooo The Moumar Quadaffi and Saddham Hussien of the internet - at least as the typical bandwidth hugger PC "the internet is for learning and scientific institutions" types would tell it. What's so bad about commercializing the internet? This award is just for an out and out good topic for a page. Inquiring minds need to know...
They kicked the love fest off the Revolving Door like a big bully. If you were to look in the ultimate encyclopedia under "GODZILLA", this is what would come out. A fine resource, diligently compiled by a true lover. Thanks Mel!
You know the feeling you had when you discovered DOOM, Mosaic then Netscape, and cuseeme? Webchat is the same way. You know this is yet another magnitude of possibilities for the linking of the 'net, even though it's not too fancy yet. The WebChat is magnificent in that the load of the whole operation is spread around on the servers of the actual chatters.
