Here are a few bookmarks. I could have just given you a bookmarks list, but instead, I decided that since some people have sent their browsers questing from afar to land on the homepage belonging to little-ol' me, I thought that others might care to visit those places.

Maybe this will do something to dispel some of that basic American insularity and lack of cultural exposure. Some of us Americans are a bit leery of foreign places; after all, most of our exposure to anyone unlike ourselves comes from our contacts with people who were for the most part kicked out of their own homelands. But this does not necessarily mean that the people who kicked them out were bad people. So let's go visit some of those places, and perhaps we will find good examples to remember, instead of the bad examples we have previously encountered.


Having trouble reading the foreign-language pages you've hit? It might make more sense to you if you visit Accent Software International, who make a multilingual fonts package. By default, if there's an English-language page at any given location, I will list that page.

Organized alphabetically by country or regional domain abbreviation, named in the prominent language of that country (where known). Some academic or corporate organizations may be listed on other pages, for instance, the French Center for Scientific Research is on the Academics and Associations Page.

China - People's Republic of -

A word of advice - Despite our standard format, please remember that the People's Republic of China remains a Communist Dictatorship. At present there is little difference between government, military, educational and commercial - all are centrally controlled by a cadre of old men who impose upon nearly a billion some strict interpretation of a loose interpretation of a dead european man whose ideas have been discredited as outmoded - but were they, in fact, tried before the time has come? Perhaps China, the People's Republic, will prove ultimately the failure or the excellence of communism of the classic sort, which has never actually been tried - or perhaps they will demonstrate that no matter the ideology, power is what proceeds out of the barrel of a gun.

Still, let us be kind to the Chinese People, they have in this century seen much suffering under any of their governments, and still they live and given the least chance, they thrive. We are wise to not insult the Dragon, for he will heal quickly and can breathe fire to increase his strength.

Officially, as best I may understand, China is a Dictatorship of the Proletariat - but tell that to the martyrs of Tienanmen Square, they cannot hear and will make no arguments of discussion. However, due to the recent discovery of the potentials of capitalism, we can only hope that the PRC will evolve through the successive stages of: Communist State Capitalism, characterized by massive central planning and tight-reins controls; Loosed-reins Capitalism, which permits unbridled economic growth but which moves towards Raw Capitalism as described by Marx; Social Restraint Capitalism, similar to the period when the US began to control Capitalist Monopolies, and then a period of Transnational Intergrade Capitalism. For it is a fact that Marx did understand much about Capital, but he did not understand this: Central Direction of a free people freely electing their responsible representatives can be made to work only in a highly-communicative and fast-responding and externally-communicating system. And so we bring you the Mainland Chinese Internet. Step right up, world, and do please show these people that to be free is to be rich, and rich in more than money.

China Economic Information Network.
State Information Center. Responsible for the development of the State economic-information backbone. A centrally-planned economy cannot possibly compete with a free-market economy unless it is possessed of the same information resources, in particular economic data interchange. Central planning under the Socialist system can be viewed as being essentially one immense corporation, lines of communication of reliable financial data is essential.

From Within The Russias

Akademgorodok Internet Project, Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences International Science Foundation, Novosibirsk Division Institute of Nuclear Physics - Novosibirsk State University. The Russian academic community is moving towards deployment of their own independent academic InterNetWorked teledata communications system. We certainly wish them well. Despite the present economic difficulties in the various Republics of the former USSR, it is well-known that Russian science and in particular Russian scientists - rank among the best in their advanced developments of scientific thought. Russian mathematicians, in particular, are held in great esteem. The world awaits their products.

Akademgorodok may one day prove itself a model of the integration of a technological humanity and nature.

a map of the
United Arab Emirates As best I can tell, the entirety of the United Arab Emirates is served from http://www.emirates.net.ae also known as Etisalat. But they have a wonderful page full of links here.
It may interest you to know that the United Arab Emirates consider it a source of pride that they have done their best to maintain a place upon the leading-edge of telecommunications. It is the intent of the Emirates to launch their own telecommunications-satellite ("Thuraya") in year-2000 CE, and they have positioned themselves well as regards telecommunications.
Please see their site and their links page which is more comprehensive and better-maintained than is my own.
