WHAT'S NEW?

Once a week (or more often if the mood strikes) we select a web site for your edification. Most will be local, but you never know. Those who crave more guidance can check our archives for 100 picks from the past. Yes, we love recommendations, but we're looking for unique ones, not your cousin's vaporware.

When someone buys something for $1.8 billion and then gives it to you free, there are only two logical questions: (1) What’s the catch? and (2) Where can I get it? We got it. We’re loving it. And we’re still trying to find the downside. We are getting paid absolutely nothing to suggest that you try this one for yourself.

Treaty of Portsmouth
FEATURED WEB SITE

The biggest event in Portsmouth history is back. One of the world’s bloodiest conflicts stopped dead here a century ago. Now a Portsmouth lawyer and many others are asking – why can’t it happen here again? Was the Treaty of Portsmouth a fluke, or does this event embody a formula that might work in an age of renewed war?

Labor Strike of 1912


SITE OF THE WEEK

What does Labor Day mean to you? Is it hot dogs and swimming and shopping for school supplies? The history of that holiday goes deeply into what working in America is really about.

The Good Shepherd by Gordon Carlisle

SITE OF THE WEEK
GordonCarlisle.com

Each time a great artist gets a great web site an angel earns its wings. Too many top talents look like chopped liver online. Or the artist entrusts his or her reputation to some gallery that also has a web site glued together with Scotch tape. Not here. This site works.

University of New Hampshire
SITE OF THE WEEK

The hardest job in web design is reaching many audiences while working for many bosses. I’d rather battle a multi-headed Hydra than manage the University of New Hampshire web site.

 

 
The Heart of New England Print Email

Heart of New EnglandSITE OF THE WEEK

Those of us who live in the three northern New England states cannot imagine how anyone lives elsewhere. Now New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont have their own lifestyle e-zine. It's all about homes, gardening, books -- but with black flies and mountain lions thrown in.

What exactly makes a web site "classy" I cannot say. But I know classy when I see it, and it’s rare on the blinking, spinning, information carnival that we call the Web. So just go see the Sean Tracey Associates (STA) site and you will know.

Paul Wentworth HouseSITE OF THE WEEK
PaulWentworthHouse.org

If ever a house deserved a web site -- it’s this one. Back in 2001 we learned that a small band of preservationists in Rollinsford, New Hampshire desperately wanted to save the town’s oldest house from destruction. There was only one glitch. The house was in Massachusetts.

The Web is a pretty funny place if you know where to look. This week marked the kick-off of a number of national comic sites. We check them out and toss in some funny local sites for good measure.

Don’t blame Janet Jackson. Blame us. TV was going to hell in a hand-basket long before Janet acted like a total boob in front of 100 million boob-tube viewers last month.

I have been migrated. Grammatically, that is impossible, but the Internet makes a mockery of correct English. This week, for the first time in eight years online, my web site was moved from one host server to another.

Cleve Horton led the Internet on a mighty chase. Like the last stray maverick in a great herd, he managed to elude the hard driving webmasters, spurning even those who promised to build him a web site for free.

 
State of New Hampshire Print Email
Written by J. Dennis Robinson   

State of NHSITE OF THE WEEK

To the victor goes the web site. Whether you are the President or the Governor, the official news is always in your favor. NH's state site has lots of data if you dig deep and lots of gubernatorial PR if you don't. Too bad some of the best material (formerly WEBSTER) seems to be missing.

SITE OF THE WEEK

For the first time in history, the web is a powerful force in the presidential elections. Howard Dean gets credit for making the Web matter. Now everybody in the race is online. The better the web site, it seems, the better the candidates chances.

Site of the weekSITE OF THE WEEK

Excuse me. Having just read Eric Schlosser’s book Fast Food Nation, I’m a little off my feed this week. Fast food, Schlosser says, is destroying us, not just in body, but in soul, and I’m inclined to agree. If the violent film industry and the raging economy and the terrorists don’t get us, the burgers will.

Ski NH
SITE OF THE WEEK

WE don't know skiing, but we do know web sites. When it comes to marketing winter sports online, the state of NH has its act together. That makes sense since a lot of money is one the line and modern skiiers make up their minds at the very last hairy minute.

SITE OF THE WEEK

Two dogs, a musical instrument and a former police officer. It all adds up toe one of the oddest new companies in the Seacoast.
