Adult/High School-In interviews with the creators of 36 widely varying Web sites, the authors ask the questions that Web wanna-bes want to know: how much money does one need to start up a site, how to protect information from being copied, if the money rolls in, etc. The authors chose four areas of interest: "Getting Advice & Educating Yourself"; "Visiting, Watching & Playing Outside the Web World"; "Collecting Stuff & Other Diversions"; and the "Written Word & Journalist Endeavors." The sites were chosen to show the "vastness" of available information, e.g., Breakupgirl.com, cyberdocs.com, The Centre for the Easily Amused. Each chapter includes a black-and-white picture of the creator(s), an "about this site" description, the Web link itself with one or two related links, black-and-white screen images, and the interview. Chapters can easily be read at random. Students will find information about creating their own sites, advice to make improvements to existing sites, and what to watch out for on the Web. And lastly, they'll learn that the money does NOT roll in for all sites-many are simply a labor of love.-Lisa Muir, Poe Middle School, Annandale, VA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
