briefs: Welcome to the Web

Welcome to the Web

Newcomers to the World Wide Web this week include Charter 88 and the British Open Golf Championship. Charter 88 launched its Web page (http://www.gn.apc.org/charter88.index.html) on 14 July - Bastille Day - proclaiming it as "the first UK attempt to use the Internet as a kickstart to political participation and a freeway for debate".

The slightly more sedate venue for the golf (at http://www.golfweb.com/) offers a variety of data about the championship, due to start at St Andrews this Thursday. Players' scorecards will be scanned in, and loaded on to the site.
