Today is OneWebDay, a day for people to celebrate online life, reflect on the positive things the internet has brought into your life, and to work to protect this amazing resource and provide internet access to more people in the world.

As a blogger, I know first-hand how much the internet can change your life, and as an educator I know how much younger generations of readers and thinkers are coming to rely upon it for news and information of all kinds.

Do something today to make the internet a better place. Go to a site that enlightens or entertains you. Leave a comment, even if you are normally a lurker, and become a more active part of the internet revolution. Don't know where to go first? Pick any of the links on my sidebar, and begin the journey one step at a time.

What will I do for OneWebDay? Blog, of course. Open a bottle of wine, of course. And visit some of my favorite internet sites, which range from the sublime to the ridiculous, such as:

The Oxford English Dictionary
The New York Times
I Can Has Cheezburger?
Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog

You already know what some of my favorite 6 dozen wine sites are, so no need to list those! But they make for good OneWebDay surfing, too.

didn't know about this day, thanks for pointing it out! Me, I'm no lurker...if I'm not commenting here it means I've been too preoccupied to surf my favorite wine sites!

Oops - I missed it on Saturday as I had major yard work to accomplish! But I am visiting one of my favorite sites now!

Welcome, everybody. I'd never heard of it, either, but there it is and it's a good cause.
