Even if the web is all a mystery to you, you can explore its limitless possibilities, starting with what's most interesting. First, stop on the "What Now?" cruise: E-mail. Contact friends, join discussion groups with your favorite interests, play in live-action chat rooms. Research the phone numbers of lost loves, locate your name in the papers, genealogies, health and medical info, the latest news, and expert advice for your personal life, career, and hobbies. You can shop the universe with a secure credit card to reserve airline tickets, car rentals, hotel reservations, concert tickets. Try banking and paying bills online. Listen to any radio station in the world, watch live views of almost anything, and filter the web for your kids.
