This just in... The DIAC-97 proceedings are now available on the web. Check them out!

In keeping with the goal of the conference to facilitate multi-way discussion on community space & cyberspace, we are developing a Resource Bank that will be available to participants and other interested people. Participation is absolutely voluntary. If you'd like to be involved in this virtual community, fill in the blanks!

The Community Space and Cyberspace (CS&C) conference is an exciting mix of informative and provocative presentations (including keynote address by Howard Rheingold, author of best-seller The Virtual Community: Homesteading on the Electronic Frontier) and hands-on workshops. We will be discussing the significance of the new communication technology from the stand point of children, education, the economy and jobs, social action, and civic and cultural values.

What's the reality? - What's the hype?
What Will Computer Networking Do For Us and To Us?

Will new forms of cyberspace media usher in a new egalitarian age or will the distance between economic haves and have-nots grow ever larger? Perhaps - and this may be the likeliest - cyberspace will just carry on business as usual and nothing much will actually change shape as a result.

Visionaries, hucksters, social critics, politicians, and cyber-pundits of all stripes - both amateur and professional - have been very generous with their theories and prognostications on what computer-mediated communication will mean for children, families, neighborhoods, civic life, and society.

Please join the discussion on March 1st and 2nd!
