On The Net

Article from The Mix, June 1995

More news from cyberspace


Meanwhile, the list of sites aimed at musicians continues to grow, with the addition of WOA! or World Of Audio. Aimed at the pro audio producer/engineer rather than Beavis & Butthead fans, WOA! features lists of top pro audio gear for sale, a search facility to make finding that SSL desk easier, links to other music-related sites, including record company sites, and lists of recording studios and audio engineers to which you are invited to add your name.

Cyberian coffee stop

Putting a more human face on the Internet, Cyber Cafes are springing up everywhere, allowing you to walk in off the street, buy a cup of coffee, rent a terminal and surf the internet. London set the ball rolling with Cyberia, the chic eaterie in Charlotte Street, and was swiftly followed by Kingston and Edinburgh. Glasgow and Manchester will shortly come online, while Cambridge's CB-1 cafe recently celebrated three months on the net.

As well as a coffee menu which would excite even the caffeine-soaked citizens of Amsterdam, CB-1 has a web site running on sleek, black and sexy NeXT boxes, with a well organised listing of web links by subject called YAHOO, for reasons which remain obscure. You can rent an electronic mailbox, giving you an e-mail address for others to contact you, and cruise the web in the bookish ambience of CB-1.

Rather than opt for the cyberpunk decor of the metropolis' cyber cafe, organiser Dan Sturdy has chosen to echo the campus feel of Cambridge, choosing a name which makes a clever pun of the local postcode. CB-1 provides a pleasingly human environment in which to explore this latest intrusion of technology into all our lives.

CB-1 also features jobs listings, a link to Cambridge University (where you can see a picture of their coffee machine), a search facility for finding sites on the net by subject, and lots of coffee cup-shaped icons. They've even posted their coffee menu up there, with prices, so you can decide which is to be your caffeine-shot before you go. I wonder if you can get them lined up on the bar for when you arrive?

CB-1 can be found virtually at:
Cyberia is to be found on the web at:

Beyond the dub horizon

Masters of Ambient Dub, Beyond Records have a site under the IUMA banner at: Here you can catch up with David Toop's Dubwise philosophy, discover what the Higher Intelligence Agency has in store for your brainwaves, and discover the new releases about to emerge from the back of beyond.

Dial Irdial for revolution

Renegade record label Irdial discs also boast some stunning graphics at their site alongside a full catalogue, sample snippets, and one of the most magnificient Anime posters this side of Cyberia. Tune in to: http://Penny.ibmPCUG.CO.UK:80/~irdial/catalo.html for your dose of revolutionary sights and sounds.

Kurzweil web

Kurzweil's K2000 is the sampler (for those who can afford it), and they now have a web site, so that us lesser mortals may find out all about their excellent range of products.
