An especially good site ABOUT THE INTERNET is Richard Lowe's www.internet-tips.net. There is a lot to be learned from looking at that site, partly because of the useful information there, but also because the site itself is done very well and sets a good example to webmasters!

News (2002/12): Gone! Why? Also, a broken-link checking program came up with the error http://www.goawaystupidbot.invalid/ error code: 12007 (no such host), linked from page(s): http://www.internet-tips.net/

Also worth having a look at is Netcraft, who will give you uptime figures for sites. Have a look at this:

My site's uptime, and... Top uptime stats, where you can find your uptime - was http://uptime.netcraft.com/up/today/top.avg.html

Plus: dbPerl's Database Scripts - Generate custom perl database script online in less than one minute with add, edit, delete search and webmaster backend routines

And: www.grsites.com - where you can check your website's search engine position

And: Kloth.net - all kinds of useful things!

Incidentally, the Internet isn't just stuff on computers; it's a medium which is resulting in global cultural change, mostly for the better. The Internet is more "democratic" in ways which old-style democracy isn't. The key feature is that anyone can stand on their own soap-box and be heard around the world, rather than just within a few yards of their patch on Speaker's Corner. This change may result in governments as we knew them in previous centuries, becoming a thing of the past. It could be a new libertarian future.
