Get your work known
Who doesn't have a personal page on the Web today? And a personal page is by no means synonymous with a few photos that are only of interest to your closest family and friends (although there are still a lot of these out there!). There are many excellent ones that deserve wider attention. So apart from sending an e-mail to your friends, how do all the budding webmasters go about getting their site known? You need to be indexed by the major search engines, of course. But rather than sitting back and waiting for the robot to visit (which may be never), be proactive. Submit your site for inclusion in the index of different search engines. All of them.
Naturally, there are agents that can do this fastidious work for you automatically. Referencing agents can submit a site to all the major search tools and hundreds, even thousands, of lesser known but still worthwhile search engines and directories. After all, there can never be too many people talking about your site. They also provide other valuable services such as checking the meta-data in your pages, seeing how your site is ranked on the keywords you have used to describe it and following the progress in your ranking over time. These agents can even analyze the sites that appear before yours in the search engine results, and give you tips for moving up in the ranking!
Judicious use of webmastering agents is to be encouraged. Robots don't like being spammed any more than human beings. But these tools can do the donkey work of promoting your site for you, leaving you free to work on the site itself. So put an agent on the job, and wait for the visitors to start rolling in J

> True love: a robotic companion?
Japan's electronics makers are building artificially intelligent robo-pets for consumers, but health care workers think the toys have a higher use as companions for elderly people who are home-bound.
In Osaka, 74-year-old Tomoko Komiyama has been participating in a year-long human/machine bonding experiment involving a fuzzy, koala-like device called Wandakun. "When I looked into his large brown eyes, I fell in love after years of being quite lonely," says the widow, who lives alone.
> An artificial nose to sniff out bombs
Researchers at Tufts University have developed a disposable plastic sensor to enhance efficiency of the artificial nose; they hope the high-tech sniffing device will improve detection of bombs and landmines.
Trained dogs - and people armed with dirt-clearing probes or metal detectors - are the current methods of choice for landmine detection. But dogs get fatigued easily, while human minesweepers are at risk of serious injury and death.
> US Soldiers Play 'Virtual Reality' Training Games
The Institute of Creative Technologies, an alliance of U.S. Army strategists, has developed 'Mission Rehearsal Exercise,' one of several high-tech interactive video games that are designed to train U.S. soldiers and platoon leaders in the rigors of war, without them ever leaving the classroom. A series of scenarios projected on a 150-degree movie screen with floor-shaking surround sound, mimic the sound and feel of a variety of hostile war situations, natural disasters and peacekeeping missions.
> Bruce Lee is alive!
Using computer graphics technology, a South Korean filmmaker is making a $50 million movie that will be the first to feature a long-dead star in a leading role. Chul Shin, a producer of 15 Korean-language films, said he is developing software that will fool audiences into believing they're seeing Bruce Lee in the flesh.
"It's very difficult to create liquids on the skin, like sweat or blood," Shin said. "That's one thing we're now solving."
