SORRY, Airplane currently not available

Version 1.0 is too out of date, V1.5 not ready yet


The Internet Paper Airplane(tm) is the shortest (useful) Internet hand-out you'll ever get -- "Everything you need to know (enough, anyway) on a Single Sheet of Paper!"

It represents a triumph of breakthrough insights into Internet user psychology and the application of bleeding-edge desktop publishing. Or it's one guy's obligatory "Gosh, Microsoft Word has a lot of fonts and whacky features" document in collision with staying up a bit too late a few too many nights. You be the judge. It's the most info I could squeeze in working in MS Word without using teenytiny type.

Contents (cargo?) of the Airplane include:

  • My patent-pendinged Net.Buddy System
  • Guideline info on how to get on the Internet (account, software, etc)
  • Stuff to do when you 'get there'
  • Introduction to smileys :-) and abbreviations (IMHO, ROTFL, YMMV...)
  • Basic DO's and DON'T's for Cyberspace, including "Learn Netiquette While Standing on One Foot"
  • Some Hot Sites and Cool URLs to Try
  • Your "Snip'n'Save" Personal Internet Learner's Permit
  • Dotted lines to help fold paper into working airplane
  • Cheap promotional pointers to my Web site and the title of my (out of date) book, The Internet Guide for New Users

To get your own Internet Paper Airplane:

  • Send me a US$1 (or the lowest-denomination bill of any other interesting currency) plus a business-size (#10) SASE (Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope).

    [Address will be replaced when I've got Airplane v1.5 ready.]

  • See me at a trade show or other event, I'm usually carrying a handful.

To offer copies of the Airplane, contact me for license terms and the most current version.

As for The Internet OFFramp(tm) ... stay tuned for further details!
