Too much fanfare for something that has been 'out there' for several
months, slowly taking shape? Probably.
But if you haven't visited the CCCC95 web pages recently, you haven't
seen their (relatively) mature look. There have been a number of
additions and a few cosmetic tweaks (several of which are made possible
by Netscape's new browser, 1.1b1--use it if you got it).
Among the additions:
* The Program *
A nearly complete version of the program book that includes convention
information, workshop and session schedules, presenter names, session
titles, activities and special events, meetings, cover art,
* More Abstracts *
More than 40 session abstracts representing the work of about 100
presenters is now available (and more continue to arrive). Several of the
texts are complete papers, and at least one is a hypertext version.
* More Related Business *
The program for the May Computers and Writing Conference is now
available, as well as information about the CCCC Winter Workshop and
calls for submissions to two electronic journals.
* Computer Connection *
There is now a list of demonstrations and consultants who will be
available at the Computer Connection (formerly the Software Sampler).
More Realtime Conversations!
The next MOOsession will be Monday evening at DaedalusMOO
(logos.daedalus.com 7777 or visit the CCCC95 Online Realtime web page
and follow the link marked by the cow image).
This meeting will be another open forum, but topics might include
generating ideas for the 5th C (computers) SIG search for key issues, the
political implications and possibilities presented by holding the
convention in D.C., or anything else that comes to mind.
Another realtime session has been scheduled for April 3. It will be a
chance to learn more about Pre/Text's online incarnation, the Pre/Text
Conversation, and about Alternative Educational Environments, a project
lead by Pre/Text editor Victor Vitanza as well as Cynthia Haynes-Burton,
Jim Sosnoski, David Downing, and Charles Stivale.
Date, time, and place tentatively set for Monday, April 3, 8:00 p.m. EST,
at LinguaMOO, mohawk.utdallas.edu 7777. More information to follow.
We hope that CCCC Online will continue (and grow) as a part of CCCC's
annual convention, but to insure that it does, and to improve how it
serves the organization, we need feedback from those who have used any
aspect of it.
Please take a minute, when you can, to write a brief not to
[log in to unmask] and say what your impression of the online
resources were and how you think they might be improved.
