The Ethernaut

The Ethernaut's Head The Ethernaut  

THE ETHERNAUT is a weekly column by John Ochwat. The purpose of the column is to recommend fun web sites – though some have argued that its real purpose is to let John's dementias come out and play.

If you're asking yourself the question, "what's an Ethernaut?" you should visit the About page. Right now you'll find the the most recent Ethernaut columns here, as well as some of my more favorite older ones.

If you're familiar with the Ethernaut, welcome to our new home. We're a .org now! Considering how non-profitable this column is, the domain fits (besides, .com and .net were taken). However, we hope to be more profitable in the future, by syndicating the column to more markets. More news on that as it happens.
