Seems like everybody's creating a portal these days. Abyan is not
only your guide to portals, it is a highly customizable, super
gateway that combines lots of trends for one of the best online
information resources available.
I mention ABOUT.COM frequently because of the high quality
information that they provide on such a wide variety of topics...
About.com's "Internet for Beginners" is one more really great

before. Now the folks at Free Pint have created a portal that is
likely to be one of the best!
The Free Pint Bar includes daily tipples or helpful websites and
information that can be found here:
Ian Clark's FreeNet has been getting a lot of attention lately. The
Freenet project aims to create an information publication system
similar to the World Wide Web. However, unlike the Web, information
on Freenet is not stored at fixed locations or subject to any kind of
centralized control. Freenet is a single world-wide information
store that stores, caches, and distributes the information based on
demand. FreeNet is still a bit techy for everyone to use, but stay
tuned because you are going to hear a lot about FreeNet in the coming
Well, I guess that's about enough Interesting Stuff for now... :)
