RE:     cyberculture studies

  A fully operational version of the Resource Center for
       Cyberculture Studies is now up and running:


  The Resource Center for Cyberculture Studies is an online,
  not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to research, study,
  teach, support, and create diverse and dynamic elements of
  cyberculture.  Collaborative in nature, RCCS seeks to establish and
  support ongoing conversations about the emerging field, to foster a
  community of students, scholars, teachers, explorers, and builders of
  cyberculture, and to showcase various models, works-in-progress, and
  on-line projects.

  In the future, the Resource Center for Cyberculture Studies hopes to
  sponsor a number of collaborative projects, colloquia, symposia, and
  workshops.  Presently, the site contains a collection of scholarly
  resources, including university-level courses in cyberculture, events
  and conferences, and related links.  Further, the site features an
  extensive annotated bibliography devoted to the topic of cyberculture.
  Finally, the site includes "conversations/collaborations," an online
  listing of scholars researching various elements of cyberculture.


  Since its initial launch in January 1997, RCCS has developed two
  new major features.  The first is "Conversations/Collaborations."
  Here, visitors are invited to browse through the research interests
  and undergoing projects of a number of scholars, researchers, and
  instructors affiliated directly and indirectly with the field of
  cyberculture.  Moreover, visitors are encouraged to contribute
  their own entries, listing their interests and contact information.

  The second new feature is called "Internet Interviews."  This
  section includes a list of links to online interviews with a
  number of digerati.  The list includes Nicholas Negroponte,
