                          The InSite Web Site
    It can be a jungle out there, right? Parents, school, drugs, sex,
relationships, work- figuring out what's going on in your life is not
always easy. You hear it from older people all the time- "I wouldn't
want to be growing up in today's world." Well, that's OK for them to
say- they don't have to live with what's going on in a teen's world,
but you do. You can make things a bit easier for yourself though, and
here's how.
    Have you visited our Website at www.theInSite.org?
The website contains all kinds of content relating to teen issues. You
will find information on sex, drugs, health, feelings, relationships,
teen rights, even the environment and what you can do to protect
it.  Join our live chat forums for discussions on a wide range of
topics, or join one of the regularly scheduled general chat groups. If
you've got a boyfriend/girlfriend problem, write to Hey Terra! (our
cyberspace teen advisor). The InSite is designed to make life easier for
teens and young adults by providing insight into what is going on in
your life and what you can do to make things better.  So bookmark the
site, and visit us often!

So who are the people who host #TheInSite conferences? Each newsletter,
we will bring you a couple of bios about the hosts. This week:
Katie Baker
Teen Leader for The InSite
Hiya! My name is Katie Baker. I live near Princeton, New Jersey and I
live with my mom, dad, and brother.  I am not new to the on-line world. I
have been chatting on-line with America Online, eWorld, and now Talk
City, and I have been a hostess in chat rooms for almost 2 years. I
loooove computers and the Internet and I especially love Talk City! Here
at Talk City I work in The InSite and Youth Online forums, as well as
the InfoBooth, Teen Talk, and New2TalkCity. I love the diversity that
comes from an on-line community!  When I'm not chatting, I am busy with
sports. I play state select field hockey year-round, as well as soccer
in the spring, ice hockey and basketball in the winter, and lacrosse in
the spring. In the summer I participate in Outward Bound trips.  I also
love making jewelry and I work at a local bead store every now and again
:-)  I look forward to meeting you on-line as KatieCCC or Platypus, 
and make sure to visit us at The InSite at http://www.theInSite.org! :-)
Steven (EnzoTIS)
   My name is Steven.  I have been working for The InSite for about one
month now and have found it to be an experience all of its own!  I was
born 14 years ago in a small town in Nova Scotia, Canada where I
currently reside.  I haven't any brothers or sisters, but I enjoy being
an only child.  I am an "A" student and a computer nerd and am going
into grade 9 in September.  I have been "hooked" to the internet for
about 14 months now and chatting at Talk City for a whole year next
   At TC, I love to play the Alphabet Soup game (#ABC), which I suck at,
and chat with my friends and the CCC's.  You can find me at Talk City
under EnzoTIS when I am hosting or Enzo, when I am not.
        That's it for this fortnight. All comments, corrections,
contributions etc. can be sent to ManTIS (Geoff) [email protected].
The next issue of
                           "Outta Sight!"
will be posted on 9/15/97, and an archive copy of "Outta Sight!" will
soon be available from The InSite home page:

Keep coming back :)
