Where does your Internet start and end? September 16th, 2007
So after hours and hours of searching the internet for interesting information to blog about, I came to what appears to be "The End of the Internet".
Trouble is that if there is indeed an end to the Internet, how come there are two "ends"? See the second end of the Internet and compare with the other end of the Internet. In fact, I like this second one better as it owns the domain "endoftheinternet.com".
So if there is an end to the Internet, where is the beginning? According to Read/Write Web there are 10 rival Internet beginnings, all of which use the new easy-to-use Ajax pages. Amongst the contenders there is Netvibes, Pageflakes, iGoogle, and MyYahoo.
All of the 10 Ajax pages can be used as an on-ramp to the Internet. In my thinkingis useful for the average net user, while iGoogle offers a really basic set of functionality. The leader in this space is arguably Netvibes, with a clean sharp interface and high usability scores.
So now you can define for yourself where you want to start the Internet each day, and don't forget if you do too much searching in a day you might find the "end of the Internet", which means to say you can then turn off your computer and do something else for the rest of the day!!
