Computers and Writing: Town Hall Meetings 1998

During the two face-to-face Town Hall Meetings within the 1998 Computers and Writing Conference and the Virtual Town Hall of C&W98 Online, "the invited participants delivered position statements, the moderators responded, members of the community present responded, the participants responded -- one after another, each building on and linked to previous comments and ideas. . . [t]he end result of these collected comments is a multi-layered, multi-vocal sense of participation in these Town Hall Meetings."  Contributors: Dene Grigar, Rebecca Rickly, and John Barber.
