The Internal Revenue Service is trying an image makeover with its new web site. The tax page is campy and fun, with easy to understand language. It offers tax forms, publications for downloading and answers to hundreds of questions about business or personal taxes.
The new site has had over a million hits in its first week on the web, according to the IRS.
With Super Bowl fever running high, the official web site of the NFL is worth checking out. There's team information about Dallas and Pittsburgh, and a chat area where fans can huddle, tackle tough questions or butt heads with fans of the other team. It's full of past Super Bowl history, so stop here for trivia to amaze your friends during any slow points in the game.
And for something really different, check out Spiv, a site from Turner Entertainment aimed at the 15-24 year-old crowd. Spiv calls itself the domain of the culturally conscious, a front line to the digital revolution.
The site is divided into four sections devoted to current events, fashion, technology news and conversation. It features sophisticated graphics and off-beat commentary, like observations about women and their shoes from a character called Zooey.
