If you knew someone who was about to use the net for the first time, what sites and tools would you recommend they start with? This person is very capable, just new to the net, so what would you set them up with? This is not about your favorite sites, it's about what you think a new user should be aware of to get them going on the web! I'd say my Internet Starter Kit would include: Facebook/Myspace: One of the two to help them get connected with their friends, family and coworkers Google: The standard in web services, it's a must. Addictinggames.com: A good way to kill time and be entertained. I'll leave mine short to let people fill in their own.
