- 52 wks project - Feeling nostalgic for the 365 project, and late to the game like I am? Every week in 2004 there will be a link to a page with recordings which are not available in the shop and preferably introduced by the artist him/her/themselve(s).

- everything2 - E2 is insanely good, and yes, I've been lurking for years. I should really make an account. And contribute. Basically, it's a huge database or encyclopedia of information. Like Wikipedia, but massively cooler.

Much of this work manifests itself as digital artwork, or online interactive experiences, hence the creation of this web site.

- mame cabs - Excellent resource for MAME cabinets and other games/arcade thingies. They seem to have a HUGE amount of information. The examples page has a shitload of links to people who have built their own cabs. I'll be revisiting this.
- robotron - You can play Robotron 2084 online in Shockwave format. What's really cool is that it appears the game was created from the original ROMs and looks, sounds, and plays (albeit with keyboard) exactly like the original. Best. Game. Ever.
