Amiga Web Directory
This used to be a treasure of Amiga related information. Unfortunately they stopped, although you can still find links to important Amiga web sites. They have got a MacIntosh sister site, for those interested (Shapeshifter users?).
The paradise for lovers of freely distributable software. Just to show that the old girl can still do it. (was:
The campaign for Any Browser
A sickening aspect of the web nowadays is that people will gear their homepage towards a certain browser or system. This in spite of the fact that HTML was designed so that homepages could be browsed using any browser on any system. The campaign for Any Browser gives us reactionaries a chance to show that we do not like browser dependance. The Built With Amiga campaign
A side effect of assuming that everybody uses the same browser to visit the web is the assumption that everybody uses Wintel-crap to run that browser on. With the Built With Amiga campaign Amiga users can show that -no- you do not need 32 Meg of memory, a 2 Gig harddisk and a processor running at 200 Mhz (whatever that means) to be on the Internet. (The previous sentence was written at the beginning of 1997) (was:

Distributed Proofreaders
Distributed Proofreaders is a web-based front-end for Project Gutenberg (PG). Books usually enter PG after having been scanned in, OCR'ed, corrected and formatted. Since the OCR process is not 100% perfect, books that were scanned in need to be read page by page, and any scanning errors (scannos) encountered need to be corrected. This can be a cumbersome process. Distributed Proofreaders helps by allowing netizens to correct loose pages instead of entire books. By proofing a page per day you can help Project Gutenberg! Distributed Proofreaders is moving towards becoming the complete processing front-end for PG, in which books are not just proofed, but also scanned, OCR'ed and formatted.
E newsgroup
This link hopefully leads to the newsgroup for the Amiga E programming language. I say 'hopefully' because I never use a webbrowser for newsreading and so I cannot tell you if the link actually works.

Project Gutenberg
Project Gutenberg publishes public domain books in electronic form over the internet. It is the oldest privately run service on the internet, predating the World Wide Web well over 20 years.
>Dutch Wikipedia
A collaborative encyclopaedia, based on WikiWiki software, which means anybody can edit any program. It cannot be done, they said, but at the time of writing there are over 100,000 entries, many of them complete trash, and just as many better than in any other encyclopaedia.
