POSTCARD FROM CYBERSPACE / DANIEL AKST

August 12, 1996|DANIEL AKST

After my recent column about women's Web sites, several readers e-mailed to suggest overlooked favorites, others messaged "amen" and a couple wrote in to state the obvious, which is that I am a numskull.

Anyway, here are some of the places I've tried since then. In all honesty, I'm too old for any of these sites, most of which struck me as far too cool (except Women's Web, which is far too earnest).

Also, these sites want women to be strong, yet some of them serve up offerings like, "Find out how other young women dealt with the hell of figuring out what to do after high school." As opposed to, say, the hell of female infanticide and wife burning. There was considerable Gen-X jargon ("women who rule," etc.), but no polka music anywhere. SeniorNet, here I come.
