Some Good Organizations To Join

Comments (0)


There are many organizations all over the internet which are
useful to webmasters and other people on the internet. This
is a list of some of the ones which I find useful.

Americans For Computer Privacy - This is the organization to
take a look at if you are interested in privacy matters.

http://www.computerprivacy.org

Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) - One of the oldest
organization of all. This group is huge and has so many benefits
that it's impossible to list them here. It can be highly
technical, and tends towards the theory and practice of
computing. They have dozens of publications and for about a
hundred bucks you get access to a huge online library of white
papers and technical works.

Better Ethics Online (BEO) - A great group all about the ethics
of the online world. They have several lists of known spamming
email addresses which can be used in filtering software.

Coalition Against Unsolicited Commercial Email - Want to learn
about spam and how to prevent it? This is a great organization
to join and join the fight.

Cyber Crew - A group of volunteers which covers just about
everything on the internet. More of a users group than anything
else.

HTML Writer's Guide - This organization has lots of good
web-based courses and a certification program (Certified Web
Professional). This group (which has merged with the
International Webmasters association) has many other great
features. Yearly members is about fifty bucks, and this gets
you the courses at half price.

IEEE - One of the very largest and oldest computer societies.
In fact, computers are only a portion of what this organization
offers. Thousands of papers are available online to members,
and dozens of publications are published. This group tends to
be highly technical and very in-depth.

Internet Engineering Task Force - Interested in helping the
internet as a whole? This group helps maintain the structure
and operation of the entire internet. This group is perhaps
second in importance (and it could be classified as first
according to some) to the W3C. They also archive and maintain
RFC's, which are the documents which describe the protocols and
standards of all of the internet.

Internet Society - Another huge organization dedicated to
helping internet professionals. A large number of benefits
are available.

(one of the best graphics editors around), then this group is
essential.

Web Master World - Want to learn about the web from
professionals who actually know what they are doing, with a
strong emphasis on promotion (especially using search engines)?
If so, visit this forum, lurk for a while, then start posting
your own opinions, experiences and questions.

webring systems. If you want to find out about webrings, this
is one of the best places to start.

World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) - One of the heavyweight groups
of the web. These people define many of the standards,
including HTTP, HTML and XHTML. This is the best place to
begin looking for information about web related specifications
and documents.
