Curious. When I read Charles De Lint's novel Spirits in the Wires a couple of months ago, I naturally tried to go to the WEB mentioned in the story. Though the site existed, all I got was a page not found error. Yesterday I tried again and this time I saw an image of an oak tree. Perhaps the wordwood is finally coming alive again.
I am gliding in the crystal wind tonight and I flew over this wonderful site on the tree of life. In it, they state: "The Tree of Life Web Project is a collaborative effort of biologists from around the world. On more than 4000 World Wide Web pages, the project provides information about the diversity of organisms on Earth, their evolutionary history (phylogeny), and characteristics."
