Excerpted-from: The Scout Report -- April 19, 1996

Rock the Vote and MCI have joined forces to encourage young people (and
others) to register to vote in just minutes online. Due to passage of the
Motor Voter Bill, a single, uniform voter registration form can now be
used in almost all 50 states, greatly simplifying the production of a
single online registration site. It's easy: pick your state, fill out the
Web form, wait 2-3 weeks to receive your voter registration application
card in the mail, sign on the dotted line, and mail the form back to your
state's election office in the pre-addressed envelope provided. Even
postage is included. Sounds like Internauts just ran out of excuses. [I
registered in my new home state of Wisconsin in about 5 minutes this
morning.] In addition, the site is loaded with original content and
opportunities to discuss the issues and express your views. Check it out.

Take Our Daughters to Work Day, a site sponsored by the Ms. Foundation for
Women and GNN (Global Network Navigator), is devoted to events surrounding
April 25, when parents will share a work day with their daughters. It
includes a message and interview with Gloria Steinem; a checklist of how
girls can get ready for the big day at home and at school; and a list of
questions to ask people on the job. Also available is a list of online
events, including a virtual chat party on April 25, and information about
the Ms. Foundation for Women. However, the highlight of the site is the
Our Daughters' Home Pages section, where GNN helps you help your daughter
[or is it the other way around? :-) ] create a Web page. Send GNN the URL
of your daughter's home page and they will link to it for one week,
beginning April 25.
Our Daughters' Home Pages:

The Ultimate Band List claims to be the Web's largest list of interactive
music links. Bands can be browsed alphabetically, by genre, including pop
rock, hard rock, jazz, new age, and dance/techno/rap, or by Internet
resource. Information on each band may include discographies, lyrics,
audio, guitar tablatures, mailing lists, and Web connections. The entire
site is searchable.
