Sometimes I encounter a site that I have never heard of before, but which turns out to be a vital part of the internet as we know it. More commonly, other people seem to have never heard of sites which to me are as familiar as really familiar stuff. People ask me, what is this whykipedia you speak of?
They never did teach us the geography of the internet in school, so I figure it's time for a lesson now. For me, in case there are any other important stuffs I've missed, and for all those poor sods who are new to the internet.
I'm not looking for sites which are just plain good, but rather those that are or should be common knowledge, either because people use them all the time, or because they have a huge influence on web culture and the world in general, or even just on history. The sort of sites you should have heard of, even if you don't use them.

A few suggestions I can come up with:

- google
- wikipedia
- facebook
- youtube
- twitter
- blogger
- flickr
- photobucket
- myspace
- craigslist
- ebay
- IMDB
- rapidshare
- pirate bay
- deviantart
- sourceforge
- w3c
- w3schools
- something awful
- 4chan
- last FM
- tvtropes
- softpedia
- yahoo
- onelook

- Internet Archive [archive of dead webpages, creative commons media, etc.]
- PayPal [helpful for paying for anything, if you don't like sharing credit card details with just anyone; eBay sister company]
- Amazon [sells books, music, etc.]
- Tineye (new kid on the block) [reverse Google Image Search]
- Slashdot (used to be important, anyway, not sure if it's anymore) [news on geeky stuff]
- Huffington Post [popular politics blog]
- Scienceblogs [self-evident]
- tumblr [trendy miniblogs]
And for the linguistically-minded…
- Acronym Finder [self-evident]
- Urban Dictionary [slang, etc]
- Language Log [popular academic/newsblog]
For that matter, some other specialized sites:
- arXiv [central mathematic papers repository]
- Discogs [discographies and sales of music, chiefly electronic]

…er, you know what? I'll just defer you to the .

What about news outlets? You've got the BBC, CNN, The Onion...

And for the comedy, you can always go to the Daily Mail or Fox News.

No one's mentioned MSN yet. Haha MSN fails at publicity.

I'm actually kinda proud to admit that
