"NII" by DANI HEINY on Nov. 7, 1994 at 12:13 Central, about NATIONAL
INFORMATION INFRASTRUCTURE VIRTUAL CONFERENCE 14-18 NOV -- PARTICIPATE VIA
CONET! (592 characters and 7 notes).
 
DO YOU WANT TO KNOW?: Who gets to drive on America's Information Superhighway?
Who gets the passing lanes and who has to stick to the truck routes?  Who
pays the tolls, who buys the gas, and who gives the road tests?  Where do
you think you're going?  What's in the trunk?  Could you step out of the car
please?
 
In an effort to broaden participation to answer these questions, the
National Telecommunications and Information Administration will host an
electronic Virtual Conference during the week of November 14-18.
 
JOIN here to participate via CoNet in six or more subtopics -- coming soon!

An intensive weeklong global Virtual Conference about our National Information
Infrastructure is about to begin.  While there are many ways for you to
participate, this one is by far the easiest.  It is well organized, since
electronic organization is unique to CoNet.  (Type PROFILE ACCESS to see how
twenty topic-access switches result in a million ways to organize topics in
CoNet.)  If you JOIN more than one of the above listed NII subtopics, your
Inbox will conveniently sort notes coming to you in those topics, so the
threads of those discussions will be much easier to follow than via email.
 
I hope to see you participating this week (14-18 Nov) in some "NII" topics!
