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

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

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

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

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

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

A good looking search engine based in the US

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