The U.S. Senate passed a local congressman's Internet tax bill Thursday. The bill, known as the Internet Non-Discrimination Act, extends a ban on "discriminatory" taxes for two more years. The moratorium expired Oct. 21. The extension was coauthored by Rep. Chris Cox, who represents Newport Beach, and Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.). Cox and Wyden sponsored the initial moratorium that was passed in 1998. "This is wonderful news," Cox said in a statement Thursday.

Elegantshopping.com! Need we say more? OK, well, here's the deal. Elegantshopping.com is a Costa Mesa company that sells women's styles over the World Wide Web. What designers, you ask? The likes of Barbara Lesser, Tessuto, Icon Apparel and Vivienne Tam. The company promises the experience of browsing its site will be "akin to walking down Rodeo Drive with just as much glamour and style, but more affordable." A rather bold claim, it must be said.

TONY DODERO This is going to be a milestone week for the Daily Pilot. On Tuesday, for the first time in our existence, we are going to set forth alone into that realm called the World Wide Web with our new website, Dailypilot.com.

Lolita Harper A newly released report designed to outline the use of the Internet as a tool to further hate has identified two local organizations as hosting extremist activities. "Digital Hate 2002," compiled and released by the Los Angeles-based Simon Weisenthal Center, highlighted the Web sites of the Aryan Baby Drive and the Institute for Historical Review -- which are both based in Costa Mesa -- as promoting intolerance via the World Wide Web. The Simon Weisenthal Center, an international Jewish human rights organization, charges that the Institute for Historical Review uses the Internet to distribute anti-Semitic propaganda, which it says manipulates history and influences similar intolerant viewpoints.

JUNE CASAGRANDE America Online recently asked me to click a button to specify which candidate I thought would be a better president. (I couldn't find Pat Buchanan's name anywhere, so being the good Floridian I am, I boycotted the polling.) After the election, AOL asked me whether I thought George W. Bush was an effective leader. The first time I ever encountered this brand of cyber-interrogation was years ago, when the Los Angeles Times briefly had its own online service.

JUNE CASAGRANDE Blog. That's a funny word. It's short for "Web log," which is a sort of online journal posted on the World Wide Web that documents anything from a journalist's experience covering the war in Iraq to the progression of some loner's kidney stone. A person who keeps one of these public electronic journals is a "blogger," short for, you guessed it, "Web logger." You see, in the information age, in which we measure time in things called nanoseconds, we don't have time for unnecessary syllables.
