AUDIO

The Web talks! Our very own THE MOUNTAIN ZONE shows off a whole page of great audio samples. NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO will bring you up to date on current events. RealAudio's HOME will answer your questions and provide you with even more sites to visit and listen to. Finally, TIMECAST provides an excellent source of live real audio content.

VIDEO

DISNEY'S STAR TOURS features several Quicktime movies of their popular attraction. REAL ROBOTS is an example of Quicktime movies being used for educational purposes. IMAGINED ROBOTS shows off video commercials from a video game. MUSICIANS is a collection of live performances from many performers in the Quicktime format. Check file sizes on all these movies before downloading: a one-megabyte movie will take about 20 minutes to download on a 14.4 modem!

ANIMATION

CRASHSITE! has a great animated gif on their home page. THE VIPER is a pretty simple but fast-loading example of simulating motion with an animated gif. Our very own MOUNTAINBOARDING is a new sport out of Australia; we've got animated gifs to prove it. A 3D ROTATING LOGO is a fine example of using animated gifs for visual identities. A FARM!: 4 views of farm in one rotating file.

SHOCKWAVE

We've made a shockwave demo for you right here on this site. TheBEASTIE BOYS use shockwave to get you around their site. A GREAT SOCCER GAME uses shockwave, and you can actually WIN something. LAURIE ANDERSON has created a mesmerizing way of experience language and words with shockwave.

LIVE CAMS

These are amazing!! From L.A. beaches to Canadian hot dog stands, you are there. Be sure to check out the Eye on the AT&T Olympic Global Village. Or spy on the world-famous Space Needle in Seattle, WA, USA. The Resort Sports Network of live cameras are trained on Ski Resorts throughout the US. A WORLD WIDE DIRECTORY of live camera sites will give you the choice of exactly where you'd like to peek.

CONTESTS

We'd be remiss if we didn't tell you that we're giving away mountain gear on our very own THE MOUNTAIN ZONE. Meanwhile, KODAK is giving away a digital camera; US NEWS wants to give you Washington D.C.; A LIST OF SWEEPSTAKES will link you up with dozens of other contests on the web.

OTHER

Sometimes sites are just so creative and interesting that they fall outside of all definitions. Check these out: WILD THINGS1, WILD THINGS 2, BANANAMAN. It's gettin' wierd.
