Top 10 National Web Sites
They're not necessarily the biggest. They're not even necessarily the best. Instead, these are the Web sites that made headlines and kept us logging on again and again.
1. Amazon (http://www.amazon.com). I haven't seen so many of my friends shopping in one place since I was in junior high.
2. Ask Jeeves (http://www.askjeeves.com). Cheaper than a research assistant -- and minus the attitude.
3. The Blair Witch Site (http://www.blair witch.com). If only the movie were as good as this intricately crafted site, so authentic it had thousands fooled.
4. eBay (http://www.ebay.com). The auction site wrought a new kind of addict: eBay junkies. Expect the book by Bret Easton Ellis.
5. Hollywood Stock Exchange (http://www.hsx.com). Finally, something that helps me understand the stock market!
6. ICQ (http://www.icq.com). The chat environment driving English teachers crazy one posting at a time.
7. iFilm (http://www.ifilm.com). Short films! Streaming audio and video! Even full-length features (like Doug Block's Home Page) before they run in the theatres. This is one to watch.
8. The Internet Movie Database (http://www.imdb.com). Answers the burning question: What was the name of that third Corey & Corey film again?
9. Priceline (http://www.priceline.com). In the words of Night Ranger: What's your price for flight?
10. Salon (http://www.salon.com). With strong writers and an impressive breadth and quality of daily content, it's worth reading every day.
