Origami on the Web
As you probably already know, paperfolding has carved itself quite
a little niche in the Internet. You can find Web-based origami
supply stores selling
books, paper, and other origami products; there are origami newsgroups
chats; there is a Yahoo
Club dedicated to
origami; there is a popular origami
email list, with members spread across the globe; origami
organizations both in the
US and abroad have Web sites; and there are over a hundred origami
Web pages, located on computers all around the world. In fact, a search
for the word 'origami' at AltaVista.com finds
over a hundred thousand Web pages!
