Web Resources

See the WorldThe Internet is rapidly making available a means of personal expression similar to the dramatic increase in camera and film consumption during the Sixties and Seventies. A home page, taking the place of inexpensive machine prints stuffed in an envelop and dropped in the mail, can keep family members up-to-date. Photographers, writers and artists can make their creations available to passersby on the electronic highway.

The internet is bringing information and entertainment to people the way radio and television has through much of the century. It is possible to interact with others on the net, or send an immediate response to the presentation. Organizations are accessible around the world. Purchases and transactions can be made on the net. Employees can work from home. Classes can be taken on line. It will be possible to significantly reduce personal contact with the outside world.

There are even more potential downfalls. The internet, like a camera, can be a tool of exploitation. Difficult questions about content and access will be faced.

We hope to feature personal home pages in this section which will inspire you to get out and do something. That is the underlying mission of cultural-crossroads.com: to promte participation for cultural activities and travel to historic and scenic places.
