Multiple Santas -- The Internet Multicasting Service has also set up a Christmas-oriented Web site, complete with a <santa@north.pole.org> address and a number of interesting Web pages. This Web site has a Cyberspace Christmas Campaign, in which several corporations, including Sun Microsystems, have agreed to donate thousands of dollars to charities of their choice. The catch is that the donations come in dime-sized increments, one for each time someone on the Internet browses the Web pages associated with those charities. So, for instance, to receive the full $25,000 promised by Sun, the Second Harvest Food Bank pages must be viewed 250,000 times; otherwise Sun gets the unused portion of their money back in early January. Browse early and often. [ACE]
