Ten Things About Online Info Sources
1. Need some answers? Go to Answers.com (I remember them when they were GuruNet....)
2. For you SF writers looking for world-building ideas, check out the planetary info at Exoplaneten.de.
3. Another dangerous place I visit far too frequently, FreeMedicalJournals.com.
4. LibrarySpot.com has most of the reference sources that a RL library has; you almost expect a virtual old lady to pop up on the screen and shush you when you get too loud.
5. Find names and links to U.S. and global newspapers, mags, radio stations and other news resources over at Newlink.org.
6. I can't explain how the Objectgraph Dictionary works, 'cause the theory is written in geek, but the results when you type in a word and then click on the dictionary or thesaurus database option are very cool.
7. No porn, but still probably not safe to look at during your next RWA chapter meeting: Sexuality.org.
8. Get your free, one-click, no-spyware toolbar dictionary download over at Starware.com .
9. The online French, Spanish and Italian dictionaries at WordReference.com are superb, and with one click you can read the site itself in French, Spanish, Italian or English.
10. A kid-safe online dictionary for the youngsters to use can be found at Yahooligans.
