Navigating the Net, Wandering the Web

DESCRIPTION: The second of three pages comprising the "binnacle" of The Telson Spur, this page is a list of links to on-line resources about the World-Wide Web, including navigation tools and resource guides. The coordinate pages, with a common header and List of Contents, contain links to resources about the Internet in general (including starting points and guides), and links to resources for finding and evaluating new sites.

KEYWORDS: World-Wide Web; WWW; web; guide; cyberspace; navigation; tools; resources

We have come up from the caves; predatory and primitive ages drift behind us. With almost the suddenness of a nova's burst to glory we have entered a new dimension of thought and awareness of Nature.... We hold the future in a delicate and precarious grasp, as one might draw a shimmering ephemerid from the clutches of a web....

Ansel Adams

There is a potential large benefit from the integration of a variety of systems in a way which allows a user to follow links pointing from one piece of information to another one. This forming of a web of information nodes rather than a hierarchical tree or an ordered list is the basic concept behind HyperText.

Tim Berners-Lee & Robert Cailliau (November 1990)

Spinning in Cyberspace: The World-Wide Web

Tools for Travelling: Maps and Metaphors
Into the Deeps: Internet Resources

Soon, the Web will be us, and we will be the Web... There are talents out there the web will release that have been suppressed for centuries because we just didn't have the systems that would let those talents express themselves. This is Pandora's box....
