Uniform Resource Locators

What’s New and Interesting?

Dave Winer and the wizards at UserLand have released a radically simple WWW publishing tool called AutoWeb. You give it TEXT or Word files, and AutoWeb produces working web hypertexts, with links and graphics. http://garnet.msen.com:80/~dwiner/

CI Labs has improved their Web site, and it now includes some fine reading material about OpenDoc. http://www.cilabs.org/

Everyone knows about the very hot-yet-hoggy NetScape; MacWeb is a much smaller web browser. http://galaxy.einet.net/EINet/MacWeb/MacWebHome.html

Fun and Games

Networked games have escaped the confines of the office and lab clusters and invaded the Internet. Can we say “business opportunity?”

While NetTrek is the granddaddy of Mac net games, Bolo is no newbie, either. [It’s absolutely addictive, even if you play as badly as I do- jtk] http://bolo.ncsa.uiuc.edu/

Outland is a Macintosh-specific commercial service featuring a pay-to-play version of Spaceward Ho!, among others. They use special client software you can get from: ftp://ftp.outland.com/

Internetrivia

Once you’ve hooked yourself up to receive information from the Net, the next logical step is to get your computer on the Net. InterNIC, an umbrella agency for the three network information centers, runs the definitive Net information server. http://www.internic.net/

If you ever wondered what you could be doing if you were writing papers instead of programs, take a quick trip to The English Server. It’s one of the most interesting libraries of articles, books, and term papers on the WWW. Rumor has it that this site is hosted on a Macintosh. http://english.hss.cmu.edu/

Thanks this month to Bob Hettinga and Jim Straus.
