Can't afford art mags? Read them on the net! World Art is one of the best. Published in Australia, with an international contents listing, but an emphasis on art from the Pacific Rim.

One of the richest contemporary art sites on the Net is undoubtedly this one, edited out of New York by Stephen Pusey and Yu Yeon Kim, curator of the 'Transversions' show at the MuseumAfrica on the second Johannesburg Biennale. Plexus has the extraordinary hit rate of between 450 000 and 500 000 hits per week, and a little playing around on the site will reveal why. Here are art projects of great elegance by the leading practitioners in the field, discussions, reviews, experimental stuff and much, much more. A site that's hard to leave.

In the old days, travellers used to keep journals of their voyages, to be published back home years later, illustrated by delicate watercolours. Welcome to onepeople.com, the road website, Paul and Charity's trip through America, Europe and Africa documented with a digital camera and a laptop. Along the way, they meet artists of many kinds - you'll meet a number of South Africans on site - and conduct interviews and take photographs. Charity entertains with her journal. The theme is connectivity - and eventually the partners hope to turn the whole experience into a CD-Rom.
