Who: Editorial Director, Discovery Channel Online
Favorite Search Engine: Lycos (http://www.lycos.com). It's still the most thorough search.
Surfing Manifesto: Stop me before I surf again. I need an intervention.
Homicide: Life on the Street
The best show on television has turned into a true and complementary adaptation online. It's an entertaining, smart experience that's easy to get lost in for hours.
A great notion. Lots of smart people. I keep hoping it really takes off.
Mr. Cranky Rates the Movies
As good as a poke in the eye with two thumbs up.
The Barbie Chronicles
I love "Barbie's Incomplete History of Art." Who can resist Barbie as Whistler's Mother? Inspired.
Cowchip County Bottle Challenge
Good clean fun. No educational value whatsoever.
WRNR Homegrown Radio
Great background music when you find yourself gazing too long at a screen. Requires RealAudio 3.0, but it sounds great.
A complete and delightful waste of time.
