Dear Reader,

(including all its subsidiary (and/or sister) pages on "coombs.anu.edu.au" server) has permanently ceased its publishing operations on Friday 21st January 2011.

All of the online resources reported here have been thoroughly checked at the time of their listing. However, it is possible that, with the with the passage of time, many of the originally reported materials might have been removed from the Internet, or changed their online address, or varied the scope and quality of their contents.

Fortunately, in several cases it is possible to access many of the older versions of the resources listed in the MONITOR. This can be easily done via the free services of the "The Internet Archive" http://web.archive.org/, a remarkable brainchild of Brewster Kahle, San Francisco, CA.

- with warm regards -

Editor, Dr T. Matthew Ciolek.

Trade Routes Resources Blog [an electronic notebook]

20 Jan 2010

Supplied note:
"The blog 'Trade Routes Resources' has been constructed in Nov 2005. It started its existence as a test of efficacy of blogs as shared electronic notebooks. Since then I can wholeheartedly confirm that a public blog with a disabled comments' section [to protect it from inanities of 'idiots electroniques sans frontieres'] is indeed a handy and reliable data-management tool. Such an online device, used as a one- or a multi-person tool, keeps a good track of scores of randomly collected notes, formats them consistently, stores images and hyperlinks, and retrieves half-forgotten scribbles with zest. Moreover, it effortlessly shares all those notes with other potentially interested readers - tmc."

"A collection of online resources of use to dromography, or the comparative study of organisation, history, geography, and logistics of movement, transportation and communication networks. This site is a part of the Old World Traditional Trade Routes (OWTRAD) Project (www.ciolek.com/owtrad.html)."
