No Dharma Initiative online, that I've been able to find, but we've got the site for The Hanso Foundation. So which, of these, are ongoing experiments on the island?

(Anyone who isn't watching ABC's Lost is really missing out. Some splendid genre television unfolding here.)

It's an awesome show. I'm greatly amused by the "namaste" at the hanso site. lol.
LOST is awsome? You siad it!!!!!!!!!!
I'm really excessively amused at the fact that Desmond was shown reading Flann O'Brien's The Third Policeman, and that the film was hidden behind a copy of The Turn of the Screw. Tiny little things, yet they add to the ambiguity of whether what people are seeing is real or not.
I noticed that too, Jess. Some really clever stuff going on in that show, no question.

Of course, the fact that the Dharma Initiative orienation film name-checked B.F. Skinner cast a interesting light on just what was happening there in Station 3, the Swan, didn't it?
I've just ordered the first season of Lost on DVD and am really looking forward to seeing what I've been missing out on. :-)
I hope you enjoy it, Deanna. Be advised that the first season unfolds slowly, but this is an instance of the journey being as important as the destination. Someone at Rolling Stone, I think it was, reviewing the DVD set, criticized the show for having characters that were obviously either Good or Evil; that someone at Rolling Stone should go get another job, as they're clearly not suited for the one they've got, as this is one of the most nuanced and layered examination on morality that I've seen on television since, well, ever.
