|AdBusters offers incisive philosophical articles as well as activist commentary from around the world addressing issues ranging from genetically modified foods to media concentration. Their annual social marketing campaigns like Buy Nothing Day and TV Turnoff Week have made them an important activist networking group. Ultimately, though, AdBusters is an ecological magazine, dedicated to examining the relationship between human beings and their physical and mental environment. Surely, most of us want a world in which the economy and ecology resonate in balance. Here they try to coax people from spectator to participant in this quest.|

The Exploratorium is a museum of science, art, and human perception located in San Francisco, California. Online since 1993, the Exploratorium was one of the first science museums to build a site on the World Wide Web. Included in the site are more than 10,000 web pages and hundreds of sound and video files exploring hundreds of different topics. The Exploratorium's web site is an extension of the experiences on the museum's floor.
|Exploratorium has created "real" things for people to explore and interact with, not "virtual exhibits." Many of the resources on their web site are examples of very simple themes of information technology but thoughtfully implemented. For example, the site contains instructions for over 200 simple experiments, all of which may be viewed on any type of web browser, with even the slowest connection, and easily printed out. The Exploratorium's web site, like the museum itself, is a work in progress, continuing to grow and provide their visitors with meaningful, revealing experiences. |
