Do you remember the time before computers were widespread, back when we used such crude devices as telephone books and dictionaries, for example? We had to spend a few minutes looking for something, often to be met with frustration and ineffectiveness. How far ahead we’ve went, in just a couple of decades! Enter the age of information, and the advent of digital directories. Much remains the same, but many things have become drastically different and easier. Whenever you need to look something up, whether it’s a word or a telephone number, you just have to type a query and the answer will come to you instantly. No need to carry around huge volumes or leaf through countless pages. The hyper-text and the search engine are by far the most efficient means of cataloguing information every invented. The Internet itself would be a vast inoperable mess, were it not for the possibility of searching data bases and making infinite cross-references between all information. This was surely the early reasoning that led to the development of web directories, such as the one you’re browsing right now. Simply put, a web directory is a phone book for websites. You can search something by category, or you can just query the database for something specific. Anything you can think of is most likely covered here; try it! This section is a meta-reference for other web directories. If you have a website whose purpose is gathering other websites across specific or general categories, you are welcome to include it here for added exposure.
