If your life seems too linear, you need Eris in your head. I haven't been able to reach this site lately: try the Turing test as a substitute.

If someone told you the Web is supposed to have science and pretty pictures, try stopping by The Nine Planets for a full-color tour of our Solar System. In addition to all the good pictures and current science, they have a nice history of planets and moons that turned out not to exist. A wonderful place to visit regularly is NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day: galaxies, planets, impressive sunsets, globular clusters, one gorgeous illustration a day, always with a brief explanation and plenty of links if you want more details. And if you don't get there every day, or even every week, they make all the back material available, sorted by date and subject.

Raphael Carter's Honeyguide Web Log is an unusual and generally interesting collection of links, which might just mean that Raphael and I have some interests in common. Also on Raphael's home page is a variety of zir own writing, including the Androgyny Rarely Asked Questions and some information about Raphael's novel The Fortunate Fall.

Feminists Against Censorship is doing valuable work, and their Web site has a good position statement and some worthwhile links.

Fully Caffeinated is the home page of Lucy Huntzinger, a good friend and a good writer who is keeping an online journal.

I've been reading a couple of good newspaper columnists whose work can be found on the Web: Molly Ivins is a voice of sanity in what sometimes seems a reactionary wilderness, and Jon Carroll offers personal and sometimes quirky observations on life in San Francisco, and elsewhere. I remained interested in Hong Kong after my visit, so I've been reading the online edition of the South China Morning Post.

I cannot in good conscience recommend that you visit DigiCrime, Inc.

My current favorite search engine is Google. It's a beta version, but I've found it fairly robust. It does a good job of finding what I actually want, and it isn't trying to sell me books or give me news stories: it's a search engine, no more and, I'm glad to say, no less.

Plergb, defined as including all other worthwhile links.

Back to my home page.
