Internet

Architext is a small company (started by six Stanford students) who have some interesting text indexing software. Their software tries to index based on concepts as well as keywords. To demonstrate their wares, they’ve taken to indexing the World Wide Web and making their database available. Check them out and try searching for some concepts.

Jon Pugh has created a new bookmarking HyperCard stack. This free program can help you keep track of your URLs, especially if you end up with lots of them, as I do.

Macintosh

For those of you who would like to read your Macintosh news in something besides English, I suggest the Club Macintosh de Québec. This site is a French-Canadian Macintosh users group, and they have nicely organized a lot of Macintosh information. A good source for those whose French is better than their English.

Club Macintosh de Québec http://www2.zone.ca/~cmq/

Here’s another huge index of Macintosh resources. Nathan Raymond has put together quite an extensive list of information.

Everything Macintosh http://www.cs.brandeis.edu/~xray/mac.html

We’ve all known that Robert Lentz has a great site for Mac developers, but recently I’ve been looking through some of his other pages. He’s done an equally outstanding job with lots of information of interest to anybody with any interest in the Mac. It’s time to check him out again.

I’ve come across a couple of sites about gaming on the Macintosh. While we await the Pippin machine from Bandai Co. Ltd., you can see what’s new in gaming on the Mac. There’s lots of information on both shareware/freeware and commercial games.

Guy Kawasaki has another mailing list he’s running. This one is more evangelism than Semper Fi, but if you’re trying to sell to the Macintosh community, it would be a good resource to track.

Neat non-Macintosh site of the Month

If you didn’t know, people have been putting cameras around and posting the pictures on the Internet. Normally a camera is set up to take a new image periodically (every 5 minutes, for example) and the picture posted. Cameras have been set up overlooking a golf course in Hawaii, in an elementary school classroom, looking at a fish tank, and any number of people offices. For a fairly complete list, check out this page.

Cameras, Cameras, and More Cameras http://www.intertain.net/~cameras/

Well, that’s it for this month. As always, if you find something interesting, or have updates, send them to URLs@MacTech.com

Thanks this month to Christopher Allen, Bill Goodman, Robert Lentz, Jon Pugh, Nathan Raymond, and many others for their contributions for their suggestions and pointers to new and old sites.
