Welcome to the Cyber-Geography Research Bulletin. This is a regular, free, email bulletin to inform you of changes and new additions made to the Geography of Cyberspace Directory and the Atlas of Cyberspaces on the Cyber-Geography Research web site. The bulletin is distributed about once a month, depending on how much time I have available for my cyberspace exploration.

The bulletins are now available in a html version available at http://www.cybergeography.org/bulletin-1-2.html.

We are happy to acknowledge the support of CORPEX. They are kindly sponsoring the Cyber-Geography Research web site.
