New Media Channel
Who watches the watchers? Media Channel is giving it a try. The launch of the self-described Internet supersite dedicated to the global media got a boost from journalism icon Walter Cronkite. http://www.mediachannel.org/
Fishy Encyclopedia
On the Internet, every dog has its day. And now, every fish, too. FishBase is billed as a global information system on everything you ever wanted to know about our aquatic friends. Includes a way-cool "biodiversity quiz." http://www.fishbase.org/

Mark the return of the Hubble Telescope with a pictorial tour at this Eye on the Universe site. Suitable for online meditation purposes. http://oposite.stsci.edu/pubinfo/pr/2000/07/
Bad Cookie
Sick and tired of those syncophantic fortune cookies you've gotten all your life? Bad Cookie doesn't pull any prognosticating punches. http://www.badcookie.com/

Sites are picked and reviewed by Technology Editor Sam Vincent Meddis. Sites are selected because they appear newsworthy; we do not endorse them, nor the products or services they contain.

You're invited to join in the exploration! We welcome your comments and site suggestions. Click here to send us an e-mail message now, or address it to cyber@usatoday.com.

To find a particular site among the thousands that have been reviewed, try our search engine. Once you're there, just check off the "Hotsites" box; then type in a keyword. Or browse through previous site selections in our daily archive.

A weekly roundup of reviews appears in the hard-copy of USA TODAY -- Thursdays, in the Life section. And please check our FAQ for problem-solving and navigation tips or for info on how we select sites.
