So what about the rest of the Internet? Where's all the good stuff?
Search engines are great, but slogging through a few thousand search results to find something gets old pretty quickly. Articles often provide information on good sites, but aren't much help if you need something right away. Good sites, apparently, are where you find them, and finding them can be a lot of work.
Webstrider is the creation of Ed Preston, a Harvard graduate and IT professional, who became jobless when his employer switched to a remotely hosted database provider. Said Preston "I spent several hours searching for a really useful portal and turned up nothing. It was obvious that the major portals were more interested in keeping people on their site rather than helping them find good sites".
So Preston began developing a prototype portal to stay involved in web technology while job searching. The sole basis for its design was to simply imagine the kind of site he'd like to see when sitting down at his computer each day. The results of his efforts can be seen at http://www.webstrider.com/
Three major revisions and a name change later, he's happy with how the site is shaping up. And so are the thousands of regular visitors who have bookmarked it or made it their home page. The first email he received from a new visitor said, "Your site is fantastic. I used yahoo as my personal home site for years. It took a lot for me to switch, but it was a no brainer... I am very pleased with your site and hope to see you around for a long time."
Also encouraging is the indication that many visits originate from colleges, universities, news and research organizations, government agencies, and other places which suggest the site appeals to serious users of the Internet.

is the URLwire Network?
URLwire is an email, web, RSS, and blog based alert service for people who write about and review web sites, like Yahoo Picks of the Week or USA Today Hot Sites or WDFM.
Who uses URLwire?
Two key groups: 1). Editors and site reviewers looking for great sites to write about and link to. 2). Online news search engines and news syndicates like Moreover.com and Newshub syndicate the URLwire headline links. Thousands of sites have linked to various URLwire site announcements since 1994
How do sites get on URLwire?
I only announce useful, unique, or educational web content on URLwire. I send the announcement to online site reviewers and journalists who are looking for new web content to write about and link to, and I post an online version of the site announcement here. I've announced thousands of sites on URLwire since it debuted in 1994.
