Synergy Access: A Global Newsletter on Futuristic Communications, Media & Networking. Number 1.
Thomas, Wes, Ed.
A global newsletter on futuristic communications, media and networking is dedicated to creating open, humanistic environments for better interpersonal communication and to exploring the phenomenon of synergy, the coming together of people, ideas and environments for creation of something greater than the sum of the parts. Editorials, poetry, and art work express and expand the concept of synergy. Events ranging from a pleasure fair to a workshop on comprehensive, anticipatory design science are announced. An article on telephonics describes the equipment for telephone conferences and classroom calls. A directory of learning exchanges and computerized networks functions as a clearinghouse for techniques and programs related to automated learning exchanges. A survey of computer conferencing systems identifies those attempting to hold a conference over weeks or months with an unlimited number of people. Notes on current news, books, and periodicals offer ideas on communication techniques ranging from utilization of radio to cable television. The newsletter is published six times a year; yearly subscriptions are $5.00. (KSM)
