You don't have to think hard to know where you want to go. Just
let your mouse do the "clicking."
Sometimes we find ourselves so overwhelmed by the amount of
great things to do on the Web that we reach a point where we
do not know what we want to do next. Like tonight, I didn't
know how to start working on a writing assignment I had to do.
I got thinking about just going to a random URL generator and,
instead of rolling the dice, I would close my eyes, then point
and click. Then it hit me. You folks may not know about Random
Link Generators or RLG. So rather than me jumping on the RLG,
I decided to tell you about it.
Obviously, many people before us have run into the same dead
end, and have asked, "Where do we want to go today?"
These people not only didn't know where they wanted to go, but
they also realized that maybe you and I don't know either. So,
what did they do about it? They created sites that would give
us what we wanted - a way to close our eyes, point and click.
It is like rolling the digital dice to see what might come up.
A quick trip to Yahoo! with the search words "Random Links"
turned up 15 sites, and a directory with ten "Search Engine
An RLG simply picks links from its database at random. A search
engine spy will let you watch what other people are searching
for and view the results they are getting.
Either way you go, you can put your mind in idle, and let
someone else pick your destination tonight.
