Subject: a notable online publication

In these incunabular days of e-publishing, I keep a list of anything
on the Web that strikes me as significant, even when I don't quite
know what it may signify. I could call these items curiosities, but
that appellation might seem dismissive, and I don't mean it to be.
Perhaps when we know enough, we can begin to dismiss things with
impunity. In any case, I submit for your consideration the "Salt made
the world go round" homepage, at
It seems to me that for us observers of online activity, the mere
fact that such a thing could exist so easily is the significant fact.
How wonderful, especially for us old salts of the e-world (that had
to come out, sorry).

Allow me to suggest that you might send the URLs of your own "notable
online publications" to Humanist whenever you see one.
