Michael Rosenbaum sat in his Harvard Law School class a few years ago thinking about jobs - not for himself, but for others living in his home state of Maryland. He had had comfortable upbringing in the Washington suburbs and was about to earn his third college degree. But not everyone had his opportunities. "I was thinking there was an untapped resource in our cities," he said. "I wanted to identify the smartest and most capable and give those people skills. That would benefit the people, the cities and the companies that hired them."

A few years ago, when Andrew Coy was a teacher at Digital Harbor High School, he offered his students a chance to learn Web design. He quickly realized those sorts of extracurricular activities were lacking, even at the tech-savvy institution in Federal Hill. Now Coy and a team at the Digital Harbor Foundation are working to create more of those opportunities for hundreds of students across the city each year. For the past year and a half, they've been doing it just blocks from Coy's old classroom, at a former city recreation center on Light Street.

It was a modern twist on summer day camp. By the time their children got home, parents could view photos and read descriptions of the day's activities online. At Wilde Lake Middle School, the people documenting camp life for the Internet were the campers themselves. This summer, the 12- to 15-year-olds who participated in the Triple T Productions Web design class published a daily online newspaper. The Summer Camp Gazette covered Aqua Havens, a marine and aquatic studies course for 8- to 12-year- olds, as well as their own progress in learning Web design.

To my DIY brides/grooms, have I got a find for you. I was poking around online yesterday, looking for a place nearby where I could take a class on reuphosltery (because I am approximately 25 years older than I appear and love to collect domestic hobbies.) A few clicks in, I hit the jackpot: an inexpensive class not too far away that starts in two weeks. Squee! But oh, what's this? They offer cake decorating class? French? Zumba? Let me introduce you to CEED at CCBC. It all stands for Continuing Education and Economic Development at The Community College of Baltimore County.

Since opening his Dreamteam Ink tattoo and piercing studio in 2009 in Randallstown, James "JJ" Joseph, 26, has kept an open mind as to what customers could use for payment. In addition to cash, he's received flat-screen TVs, car audio equipment, jewelry, laptops, cell phones and more. About four weeks ago, a happy client not only helped spread the word on his business, but gave him a $1,200 Teacup Yorkie puppy he named Tank. This does not strike him as unusual. "Bartering has become very popular lately.

While showering one May evening, Minnesota native Drew Johnson had an epiphany.

A year later, Johnson is now in his 34 t h state: Maryland. Just five months after he had the idea, the 31-year-old Web designer and AmeriCorps veteran began his service - based journey through America.

When he addressed Congress and a prime-time audience about the economic recovery plan, President Barack Obama made a point of highlighting a new Web site his administration created called recovery.gov, "so that every American can find out how and where their money is being spent." It's the most innovative example so far of Obama using the Internet to change governing, which was anticipated after the success he had in using it to help build support to win the presidency. His naming last week of Vivek Kundra, the chief technology officer for the District of Columbia, as the first chief information officer for the federal government, is seen as buttressing that effort.

It may be true, as scientists tell us, that you can discover whole worlds in a drop of water, but Rickmond Wong would prefer to explore a bowl of soup. Not just any soup, but ramen. On the Internet, Wong just about owns the subject. He is the Rameniac. Wong's Web site, rameniac.com, is a lively compendium of all things ramen, one of the best of the food sites by single-topic fanatics. There is an in-depth discussion of Japan's regional styles of ramen (22, according to Wong). There are reviews of ramen restaurants, reviews of packaged ramen, even videos of ramen being made and slurped.

Spencer Ryan Trusz, a Web site designer whose diverse interests ranged from ancient Rome to Star Trek to world peace, died Wednesday at his home in Glen Burnie after a two-year bout with brain cancer. He was 25. A young man who thought deeply about the suffering and sacrifices of others, Mr. Trusz spent Memorial Day writing letters of thanks to all the military veterans he knew and to his godparents, who belonged to an international peace movement. "He spent a lot of time thinking about justice and injustice in the world," said his sister, Nicole Pekarske of Glen Burnie.

I woke up one recent morning with a gravelly voice that was about an octave lower than usual. Think Lauren Bacall meets Tom Waits. In other words, I had a terrible cold. It seemed like a good day to stay home and create a Web site. (Hey, it's almost as good as watching daytime TV.) Once upon a time, that would have been tough to do in a day. In the dark ages of the Internet - the 1990s - building a Web site took hours of painstaking coding in HTML, the arcane formatting language of Web pages.
