National Geographic

Being a photographer, I'm always interested in good photography web sites that tell about the world, its people, places, experiences, travel, etc, in a compelling way...along with great photography!

Well, as we all know, this is the very mission of National Geographic. To open our eyes to the world. The magazine has been around since the 1800's, as this great DVD box set will show you. However, when they first launched their web site years ago it certainly didn't do justice to the legacy of the magazine. It was disorganized, hard to work your way through, etc.

Recently I came across the newest iteration of the National Geographic web site, and I was blown away by how much it has been improved.

If you have any interest in our world, its people, places, things, technologies, music, etc, pay a visit to this site. Not to mention that there is fantastic photography all over it! I got lost in the site for hours the other night and walked away from the computer feeling better for it.

National Geographic is not about the "news". I can get that from CNN, MSNBC, or any other news site. National Geographic is about "the world".

Check it out...I'm sure you'll find something compelling that will interest you and have you walking away from your computer wondering more about the world around you.
