> Would you like to be part of an art exhibition? Here's a chance to show
> off your artistic skills to the world, and have your drawing printed
> in a book of 500,000 human figures, published to mark the world
> population reaching 6 billion.
>
> Half a million drawings of people will be collected from the Internet.
> These 500,000 drawings will be compiled in a book of which 12,000
> copies will be produced - making 6 billion drawings to be shown together
> at an international YouDraw exhibition.
>
> Using a simple palette, you can use your mouse to create a black & white
> drawing. (You'll need Java enabled in your browser to do this.) It's
> a bit tough to create a real work of art like this, but some of the ones
> I viewed were quite good. When you're done, just click a button and
> your drawing is added to the collection.
>
> It's a fun project for kids or adults, and I'm a big fan of collaborative
> efforts like this. To try your hand at online art, visit here:

> SELL YOUR BRAIN

> FatBrain is an online bookstore that sells geeky stuff. They specialize
> in books, training materials and print-on-demand documentation for
> business, finance, math, science and technology experts. But recently
> they've added a novel twist to their site, something they call eMatter.
>
> What is eMatter? Simpy put, it's a way for you to sell your smarts.
> Just upload your research notes, term papers, tutorials, white papers,
> short stories or poems to the site, slap a price on it, and you can sell
> it online at Fatbrain.com. They'll even send you a a free eMatter
> T-shirt (while supplies last) for uploading your eMatter.
>
> And to celebrate the grand unveiling of eMatter, they're offering a
> discount of $15 off any FatBrain order totaling $25 or more, through
> October 29th. We have no association with FatBrain, I'm just passing
> along the news. To learn about eMatter or get the $15 discount, see

> FROM THE "SOMEBODY HAS TO WIN" DEPARTMENT
> -------------------------------------------
>
> The CBS television network had a problem. How could they launch a new
> Web portal from scratch, compete with Yahoo, Excite and other big names,
> and still attract millions of visitors? They decided to take the direct
> approach and give away huge piles of money.
>
> Yes, CBS is really giving away $25 million dollars. No, there really
> isn't a catch. Just visit their new website and enter for a chance to
> win $10,000 a day, $1 million a month or $10 million on April 17, 2000.
> To read all about it, go here:

> The small print says this sweepstakes is for US residents only. If any
> one knows of a similar offer for other countries, let me know and I'll
> print 'em here. Oh, and if you win that $10 million prize, don't
> forget - you heard it here first. :-)
