Interesting Research Stuff
By Curt Davis - August 07, 2000 (From the Interesting Stuff Newsletter)

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...'s "Internet for Beginners" is one more really great resource. Even though the website is geared toward those that are less experienced, I think the information there might be useful to everyone (I know I thought it was).

In the last Interesting Stuff, I mentioned MDExpress (a *great* site BTW)... well, since last time the folks at CEO Express have created two more _really_great_ industry webpages - one for Journalists and one for Lawyers. Every time I stop by CEO Express I find more useful stuff that I didn't know was there before. These sites are definitely worth seeing!!!

Lawyer Express:

Journalist Express:

If you are having trouble finding company information, De Paul University's "How to Find Company Information" can help!

If you are looking for information on a private company - might come in handy:

The Search Engine Alliance is a Confederation of Expert Search Engines and Directories. When you see the garbage that most search resources index, you'll appreciate the fact that all the resources at SearchEngineAlliance are run by teams who live & breathe their respective areas of expertise.

GoGettem is a meta-search engine that uses other search engines to get results for you in a variety of categories. You can search breaking news and archives of stories; newsgroups; specialty directories; stock tickers; manufacturing directories; and much more.

The Free Pint is a really great newsletter that I have mentioned 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 months!

Well, I guess that's about enough Interesting Stuff for now... :)
