Evaluating Websites

"The World Wide Web is a lot like a flea market:  there's a vast selection of sites to choose from but not a lot of order to it.  Some sites are offered by reputable 'dealers' and some from individuals who want to show off their personal favorite items.  Sometimes it's hard to tell what's a hidden treasure, what's worth taking a look at, and what's a waste of time."
