web site of the day

TONS AND TONS o' STUFF. look around

Far Away from Home

Still and all, why bother? Here's my answer. Many people need desperately to receive this message: I feel and think much as you do, care about many of the things you care about, although most people do not care about them. You are not alone.
- Kurt Vonnegut
This site grew (and grew!) out of an investigation into a disastrous investment in New Zealand forests. It has morphed into a reference site covering a variety of topics.
Sympathy would be appreciated for the difficulty in categorising the hundreds of articles this site contains - at least until I can migrate off FrontPage and start using something flexible enough to allow more real-time operations.
For example, when students visit prisons, take drugs, or have their values tested, where would these stories be filed? Where do I put animals found in Wellington? Information and technology professionals given preferential immigration status? Does an article about patriarchy belong in Politics, Society/Culture or Men?
You get the idea.
Below is a computer rendering of the "shape" of this website followed by a few words on the navigation structure. I add new items almost daily. Usually I stuff them in where they seem to relate best, which may make them difficult to find. (If they're important, I'll put a link to it from the home page "News" column.) Suggestions for a better way to organise things would be gratefully received.........
