Web Watch

Internet

The rapid advance in Internet browsers is amazing. Microsoft and Netscape are fighting over your disk space and each is introducing new versions of their software at a breakneck pace. You owe it to yourself to make sure you have the latest of whichever browser you prefer (or do as I do and have both). To keep abreast of what is happening with browsers, there is the very useful BrowserWatch site. Here you can find all the rumors of upcoming releases and information on plug-ins, bugs, and statistics on which browsers are the most popular.

To go along with the new capabilities of the browsers, the Web page creation and editing tools are having to chase to keep up. Besides Adobe’s PageMill, there is the World Wide Web Weaver and PageSpinner. I’ve also heard about an editor called Loma Prieta; maybe it will be available when you read this. And there is always BBEdit with the HTML extensions.

Macintosh

ScriptWeb has been updated and has more script system information than ever. This comprehensive source of information about scripting on the Macintosh is invaluable to anyone doing any script development.

Apple’s Developer University is making its courses available on the Internet. Based on its self-paced courses and updated and hypertext-linked together, these will be a great resource for developers. Even if you’re an experienced Mac developer, sometimes you have to delve into new areas. The Mac system software is getting so big that it is difficult to keep up with everything. The first sets of courses available are Drag and Drop, Thread Manager, QuickDraw GX, and PowerTalk.

Ambrosia is hosting a large number of sites interesting to Mac aficionados and developers. Available here is information on Mac Game resources, MacMedia magazine for users, the alt.sources.mac archive, the Mac Internet Page, the PowerMac Pruning Page, and others. They don’t create all this content, but are hosting a lot of good stuff.

Neat Non-Macintosh Site

If you never read it, you can now. Engines of Creation by K. Eric Drexler is now available on the Web. This seminal book talks about how nanotechnology is going to radically change the world. If you have not heard about nanotechnology, you probably should. It is likely to become part of the political and scientific debates in the future. Even if you have read the book, it might be worth it to read it again, and the on-line version has links to sources of further information.

Engines of Creation http://reality.sgi.com/whitaker/EnginesOfCreation/

I originally mentioned this site back in one of my first columns, as having a page for looking at fractally generated planets. Besides that, there are various code sections that might be useful to a developer (such as a string macro language, the Hacker’s Diet, and code to compress voice to 2400 bps). There are also speculations on semi-autonomous mining robots, a “final chapter” to Rudy Rucker’s novel The Hacker and the Ants, and a 900-page history of Autodesk.
