CRN: The Newsweekly for builders of 
technology solutions
Before the Internet, if you wanted to examine the world's most famous original manuscripts, you had to be a scholar. If you wanted to see art from the ancient world, you had to visit a museum. And if you wanted to stare at a dinosaur - like "Sue" - you had to buy a ticket and stand in line. No more - if you know where to look.

Debkafile
This Jerusalem-based site has achieved recent notoriety for its tip-sheet-like reports from the war zone. Run by two self-described "experienced" foreign correspondents, the site offers commentary and analysis of global events, especially from the Middle East. Caution: Most of the information is attributed to unidentified sources. But Debkafile has been ahead of the pack often enough to suggest that the reporting is good. Some of it is frightening, like a recent report that bin Laden has 100 or so "lone wolves" operating under deep cover inside the U.S. and abroad waiting to carry out preprogrammed missions. - Forbes.com

Moss Foundation, The
Often minimized, sometimes omitted, art education is rarely seen in the program of instruction for special education. Yet the visual and performing arts provide a vital link to learning. Students with learning disabilities and other special needs are entitled to the creative opportunities art can offer. Recognizing the need to promote and develop ways to integrate the arts into general and special education programs, the P. Buckley Moss Society established the Foundation in 1995. - From the Website

News From The UN
It's probably a safe thing to assume you can get more information about more that's going on in the world from the United Nations' own News Centre site than one can glean from the usual inward-focused American news organs, even if it all seems to take the form of UN press releases. Here we learn, for instance, that the war-torn nation of East Timor has signed the territory's first-ever constitution - a story you might have read if you'd looked deep into the pages or your local newspaper - here it is front and center under the news heading "Peace and Security." Among today's site headlines: Afghanistan allows girls to attend school for the first time in years; world leaders adopt an anti-poverty action plan; and UN Secretary General Kofi Annan wants $58 million to beef up UN buildings' security. - Newsbytes 
Old-Computers.com
Most of us readily associate the names Apple, IBM, and Compaq with computer hardware. But do you remember the names Acorn, Luxor, or Eagle? Starting in 1973 with R2E's Micral, a computer with a processor speed of only 108 KHz, this site archives over 500 old computers. Rounding out the "old" machines is Amstrad's PCW 16 from 1994, a robust computing wonder that clocked in with 16 MHz and an operating system named Roseanne. This homage to defunct hardware shows how far computing power has come in the past few decades. - Yahoo! Picks 27-03-2002
Opera Critic, The
Even the most fanatic of opera buffs ought to be pleased with this New Zealand-based site's global panoply of offerings. Largely a clipping service of the world press, The Opera Critic links to reviews and articles that allows fans to stay abreast of the opera universe (especially if you know German or French). - Forbes.com
Osama's Bin Bloggin 
You think we are illiterate and technologically backward, but we are not, Allah be praised! We have cell phones, PCs and the Internet and we blog! - From the Website
Oscar: A History
Robert Redford made a comment straight out of the Gettysburg Address Sunday night, to the effect that the world would little note nor long remember the Academy Awards ceremony goings-on two weeks down the road. Probably true, but if Filmsite.org is any indication, the films receiving awards will never be forgotten. Virtually every movie that ever won an Oscar is given an in-depth review for content and artistic achievement on this site, giving would-be cinema buffs an opportunity to learn about groundbreaking films such as F.W. Murnau's 1927 silent classic "Sunrise," which won a special award for "Artistic Quality of Production" in 1927-28. The site also takes note of exemplary films and performances that did not win Oscars, many of which were not even nominated. Among films snubbed outright were landmark productions such as "Frankenstein" (1931), Charlie Chaplin's "City Lights" (1931), "The Searchers" (1956) and "Reservoir Dogs" (1992). Many great actors and directors were completely ignored by academy voters during their lifetimes, including performers Steve McQueen, Lillian Gish, James Dean and Marilyn Monroe, and directors Orson Welles, Francois Truffaut and Alfred Hitchcock. - Newsbytes

TheDictatorship.com
Who was the nastiest, most despised, and fearsome dictator of the 20th century? Names like Castro, Duvalier, Hitler, Mao, and Marcos spring to mind. And hey, don't forget Pol Pot, Mussolini, and Kim Il Sung -- they were pretty bad hombres, too. This tongue-in-cheek site dissects infamous deeds and atrocities and pits autocrats against each other for the ignominious title of Dictator of Dictators. We won't give away the outcome, but there are no Cinderella stories in the final round. While you're poking around, stop by the "Who's Hot and Who's Not section" -- Slobodan Milosevic continues to slide, while Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe remains red hot. - Yahoo! Picks 21-03-2002
