This includes hobby pages, home pages, "fan" pages and any other pages posted out of the goodness of someone's heart. The internet has traditionally been a r-
place for people to share what they know with other interested people, without looking for personal gain. Though there's a lot of commercial activity on the Web now, the tradition of sharing continues among individuals.
There are some outstanding personal pages with good information on such things as astronomy, cooking, ethnic history, medical conditions, auto leasing, you name it. There are "fan" pages with volumes of information on someone's "favorite author" or "favorite movie star." A lot of these are frivolous, but many people are "fans" of classic authors like Edgar Allen Poe or Jane Austen and have posted terrific information about those people and their works.
