What is the Midland Crossroads Research Center?

A full-service place to rest and relax along the Internet super highway with outbound connections to all points: north, south, east and west.

Midland Crossroads began as a series of links that were commonly used in an internet tour course at Iowa State entitled the "World Wide Web Virtual World Tour" and were later also used in the "World Wide Web Homepage Helper Workshop" as sample links. The links were popular enough that they began to have a life of their own and, hence, the Midland Crossroads Research Center was created in January 1995. The Midland Crossroads facility was remodeled and reconstructed from June-November 1995, and remodeled again in July 1997, and once again remodeled in April 1999. It's been tinkered with since then in 2001 and 2005.

Who is responsible for this?

Joe Struss is the tour guide for the "World Wide Web Virtual Tour", the workshop instructor for the "World Wide Web Homepage Helper Workshop" and the creator/general manager of Midland Crossroads. He is also a Systems Analyst at Iowa State University in the Creative Services Group where he works as the Director of the Computer Survival School.
