Information on the Internet 

The Internet has provided us with a way to contact and communicate on a global basis. It is only natural that we would be interested in using these resources and venues for the study and exploration of dreams, dreaming and dreamers. 

One way of understanding the larger picture of what is happening is by getting some background and history, and several approaches to Net History are offered here, from time lines to short tours. 

Also, you can find here service providers in your local area and some influential Internet Organizations.
