THE SUBLIME TO THE RIDICULOUS

WEBWATCH

One of my happier excursions on the web has been with Eyecandy at http: //eyecandywebcandy. blogspot. com. No, it's not what you're thinking.

What it means is that every week - and sometimes more frequently - Eric Morehouse sends out an amusing/great/ interesting/whatever site.

It is what blogs, for this is a blog, were invented for and it's great. Do sign up.

Recently, AJ email boxes were overloaded with the press release about www.thomasmatthews. com. The opening page has five people in Guantanamo Bay-style orange jumpsuits plus miner's helmets in a tunnel.

Eh? There is a box in the top left with unreadably small text - this is, apparently, a communications company.

You click on 'enter site' and are presented with a manifesto blah in pale orange type. You click on 'our work' on the pale orange menu at the top and down drops a list of work types. You hit on 'wayfinding and signage' (a tautology, surely) and click on 'earth centre' and, whew - for this is the last of the three clicks away from the home page - there is an image of the Earth Centre with, along the top, the possibility of more images. Oddly, hitting the Back button takes you back to your browser not the previous page.
