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.
A fully operational version of the Center is now up and running: http://otal.umd.edu/~rccs.
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.
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, Allucquere Rosanne (aka Sandy) Stone, Sherry Turkle, and Gregory Ulmer.
