Mike-- I'm one of the committee that put the 700 Sites together. We worked
very hard on a very short timeline, & put together a product that, while
not perfect, is definitely a good resource for those looking for good
content sites for kids 14 & under.

Soon ALSC (ALA's Association for Library Service to Children) will be
releasing a list of "Notable Web Sites" for young people 14 & under. It
will be a much smaller list (like 20 or so), featuring the "best of the
best" for young people. --W
