Can I now blame you for the dishes not getting washed, invoices not being sent, and the dog going hungry?? This is a monster list - I'll be there for hours :-) thanks, in the first 5 minutes I found bunches of interesting links.
That statement was made by dmoz editor Shirley Bradbury when she visited one of the sites in my network some years ago. The Open Directory Project, dmoz, is the largest, most comprehensive human-edited directory of the Web. It is constructed and maintained by a vast, global community of volunteer editors so in a sense it is a competitor to my network.
If you know what you are looking for, you will find it in less than a second on a search engine. If you are unsure of what you need, you can look at this starting point as exploratory search or knowledge discovery. Via this site you can take a specific path through the internet's graph, named the Giant Global Graph (GGG) by Tim Berners-Lee that invented the World Wide Web, an internet-based hypermedia initiative for global information sharing.
It is based on links collected and cultivated from the start of the internet. As you see the links and articles are categorized in Norwegian and Global. If you browse through the network, that we name "the Center of the Digital universe", you will note that some parts of the network are more finished than other parts and some parts are still under construction. It is a never ending project, a moving target.
With an experience of 20 years in the research department of the Central Bank of Norway, the network is strong on finance and economics. In addition it is strong on information technology, green solutions, social networks and site ratings. It is strong in the sense of the pedagogical way the links are collected, categorized and rated. Some parts of the link collection are fairly mature. We try to make the link collection stable and contextual. Take the journey and judge for yourself. Dynamic learning of exploratory search may in the future give you the edge. The result pages of a search engine is in a sense the least common denominator of the masses.
Under the headline: "Pay per static brand link a better solution for professional publishers" you can read about our experience with various providers of online advertising. There are a lot of advertising opportunities, from a simple static banner link or what we have called "Static trademark links to your own blog or a syndicated mini site within our site.
Note that the two main sites, MultiFinansIT.no and MultifinanceIT.com have been online since late 2004. This is important if you want a flying start of your international shop or eCommerce site.
