Trawling for giant calamari online

Stephen Baker

Susan Crawford compares the Internet to the vast unknowns of the oceans, and says we need an explorers club to plumb its depths and send back reports.

"Even beyond tracking network performance and standard user antics, it would be great to collect strange online species -- what's the online equivalent of the fabled giant squid? The wet variety has "eyes the size of soccer balls and trailing tentacles that can reach lengths of sixty feet." One can only imagine what the virtual kind looks like."

Anyone know of any virtual giant squids (or lobsters or anemones, for that matter) to report? I would imagine that many of the most exotic are written in languages other than English.

I found this link for Indiana parents of Autistic children. My child is Autistic, but is mildly handicapped, and many parents I've talked with have shared how hard it is to find information in one place. Please share with the Working Parents group, too (I didn't know where to post it there). Finding the right resources is half the battle. It's not really a blog, as it is a webpage with lots of great info. So, here's some help: http://www.michaelslist.net/index.html
