is the Dutch American K-1 WebRing?
The Dutch American K-1 WebRing is
a totally free service offered
to the Internet community. Through the
Webring we provide the Internet
community with a different way to organize
content on the World Wide
Web. The Dutch American K-1 WebRing
is a way to group together
sites with similar content by linking
them together in a circular fashion: a ring.
The idea is that once you are at one site
in the "ring," you can click on a
"Next" or "Previous" link to go to the
next site in the ring and--if you do it
long enough--end up where you started.

a few other people and having each person
add a link to their page
pointing to the next person in the loop.

to join the ring, someone has to edit
their page to point to the new page
and--when the ring gets big enough--it
becomes more and more difficult
to keep the ring "intact" when pages go
down or drops out.
A Ring provides a solution to all of these
problems, as well as numerous
enhancements. When you join the Dutch American
K-1 WebRing, the HTML
code on your home page never changes.
Links point to a special CGI script
that will send people to the next (or
previous) site in the ring. Because the
central ring database is located in one
location, sites can be added and
removed quickly and easily, and because
the script allows you go continue
past sites that are unreachable, you will
always be able to continue around
People can travel a ring in either direction,
either jumping to (or skipping) the
next site or previous site, jump to a
random site in the ring, or simply get a list
of all pages in the loop. And, best of
all, the Dutch American K-1 WebRing is
