The SUBCLUB has just been designated a Cool Site in the Netscape Open Directory. The Open Directory Project's goal is to produce the most comprehensive directory of the web, by relying on a vast army of volunteer editors.
The Internet Brain
The web continues to grow at staggering rates. Automated search engines are increasingly unable to turn up useful results to search queries. The small paid editorial staffs at commercial directory sites can't keep up with submissions, and the quality and comprehensiveness of their directories has suffered. Link rot is setting in and they can't keep pace with the growth of the Internet.
The Republic of the Web
Instead of fighting the explosive growth of the Internet, the Open Directory provides the means for the Internet to organize itself. As the Internet grows, so do the number of net-citizens. These citizens can each organize a small portion of the web and present it back to the rest of the population, culling out the bad and useless and keeping only the best content.
This Isn't a Talk Show
Usenet has its share of experts and good information, but you have to be an expert yourself to tell the good from the bad. The Open Directory is a self-regulating republic where experts can collect their recommendations, without including noise and misinformation.
The SUBCLUB has been picked as the most comprehensive site on the web that deals with subminiature photography.
