Community Programmes

Catalytic Communities
A site for linking community issues to solutions (suggested by Chris Macrae)

The Enterprise Center
Della Clark is doing something amazing in Philadelphia. The Enterprise Center is an incubator and training centre for inner city entrepreneurs. Unlike dotcom incubators, she's helping to launch exterminators, contractors and the like. She has plans for changing an entire neighborhood in Philly—and she's doing it! The Center itself is housed in the original American Bandstand broadcast studio (suggested by Bill Jensen)

The Global Renaissance Alliance
An empowering site, to bring happiness and control back into our lives at a time when many think politics and big business get all the breaks. The mission of this global network is to make a stand in our communities for the role of spiritual principle, making use of the power of both mind and spirit to help heal the world and the emerging awareness of this throughout the global community

Mercy Corps
Six thousand humanitarians take on some of the world’s toughest challenges to help make people’s lives better

Directories

Beginthier
Free Dutch web directory, running since 1997

Computer and Communication
Webstart Communication's nicely focused directory of computer and communication industry firms, zines, projects and newsgroups

External Hard Drive
A useful directory and starting-point for web surfers

High Street Central
A highly comprehensive guide, with everything from an Amazon.com search, job listings, and a directory featuring everything from screen savers, free stuff, lingerie, and fashion to food, literature, flights and stocks

Jayde.com
Jayde has matured into a stylish directory with web-promotion info. One of the best and most useful—been that way since we first saw it in 1997

Link Technologies
There are a lot of portals going up around the web. Link Technologies does an admirable effort with a practical and neat directory

New Zealand Community Development Trust
A concept based around a structured public directory, allowing parties to create their own communities online

NZ Pages
New Zealand's premier web directory—very comprehensive and practical to use, and yes, there are real people behind the scenes

Zona Latina
Information, links and resources on Latin America from this very comprehensive directory
 

Education

Gallica
The French national library archives, accessible online
 

News and newspapers

Electronic Telegraph
A pioneer on the web and the best source for UK news: reports from The Daily Telegraph and The Sunday Telegraph

Financial Times
Far better now that the design has matured to take into account the web reader of the FT. Again, familiar content and great journalism geared for the business reader

Handelsblatt
Germany's financial newspaper. In print it's one of the best designed in the country; the online edition preserves much of this integrity with useful charts of the DAX and latest news

International Herald–Tribune
The world’s best-known international newspaper, published in Paris and New York, online. Design-wise, the site’s never been a leader, but the content speaks for itself

Newsroom
New Zealand site has a lot going for it, not least parliamentary reports and up-to-the-minute additions

The New York Times
Much better now that the content's available to everyone. The NYT preserves much of the look of the print edition, and design—and content-wise, is one of the best transplant efforts on the web

SciTechDaily
New Zealand’s first Webby Award nominee (2002), Vicki Hyde’s site was beaten in the People’s Voice by mere percentage points by the might of NASA—a most respectable effort. And it’s not hard to understand why it had the popular support: great people behind the site, comprehensive and accessible information and an interactive forum

Scoop
Independent New Zealand site with numerous updates. A successful pure-play news site, frequently updated

The Washington Post
One of our US favourites and home of the ‘Style’ Invitational
 

Online Business Promotion

Linkcentre
If you haven't already, add your page to the Linkcentre for additional exposures
 

Politics

Global Reconciliation Network
A network set up to share knowledge and to reconcile political and cultural differences

Sida
French readers, don’t despair. Sida is the Swedish International Development Agency, which seeks to improve third-world living conditions. It is a government agency that reports to the country’s foreign affairs department
 

Search engines

Best of the Web
A speedy meta-search engine with its own directory that deserves to be better known. Useful, well designed and according to PC Data, the fastest-growing SE on the web (September 16, 2000)

Duck Duck Go
Our default search engine at our company. Unlike Google, it doesn’t track you at all

Gigablast
A relatively new search engine from Matt Wells, who spent around $8,000 on gear that attempts to out-Google Google. Gigablast features real-time updating of new links

Search Beat
A comprehensive Australian and New Zealand directory, with real reviewers behind the scenes

What-U-Seek
A good looking search engine based in the US

Where2Go
A search engine that focuses on legitimate, registered businesses around the world
