Thanks to the Internet Brothers for the Helpware and Community Award.
Helpware and Community Award spaceIt is my pleasure to announce the selection of OWNO for an Internet Brothers present in the Helpware and Community category. It is quite a resource for learning and understanding other cultures no matter where one is located. One surprise, being from Germany as you are, I was pleasantly pleased by your grasp of the subtle nuances of English humor. I found myself chuckling out loud a number of times. Thanks.

Jeff Clark, on behalf of the
Internet Brothers Presents Review Panel

The World Online

A non-political, non-commercial portal, One World - Nations Online (OWNO) calls itself "a holistic and philanthropic project, dedicated to the art, culture, history, and the uniqueness of a nation and its people." We like its take-off on browser compatibility - "Best viewed with an open mind" - and its explanation of its icon for a cultural spot as "possibly not very [sic]
interesting for kids." Our favorite resource here is the collection of links to official and unofficial sites alphabetized by country. Many will be surprised to find a large number of sites in Third World countries. (Patience may be required to receive a response from some of them.) Other resources include links to "Fascinating Sites", global information, official and tourist
sites for each of the United States, regional search engines, maps, clocks, a photo gallery, a message board, and a newsletter.
All in all, OWNO is an excellent index with a huge scope.
