Andrew Skadberg began using the Internet in 1996 and quickly realized that this communication technology would transform the world. He first used the Internet developing a Web site for fundraising for the first Great Texas Birding Classic in 1996. Then in 1997 he learned began developing Web sites, deciding to conduct research about the Internet for his dissertation entitled "Nature Tourism in Cyberspace: an Examination of its Geography and Character in the Network". He believes that we have barely tapped into the full potentials of these technologies as far as empowering individuals and groups of people to come together and work "collaboratively". Often Andrew gets an "inspiration" to write - the following describes connecting a variety of "conceptual Web portals" into a set of resources for supporting endeavors across a broad spectrum of human endeavor.
