    Topothesia means a "viewing or touring of fictitious or imaginary
places." It's a place for unravelling the complex intersections of
humanity, technology, and imagination.
    Topothesia is not quite an electronic journal. It's an Information
Singularity (IS) - a place for information accretion. You throw us data,
and if it happens to be sympatico with the direction of the Webspace, it
    For the "mission statement" ("vision") of Topothesia, view the
following URL using your web browser:
When do we want stuff?
NOW, or pretty darn soon.
What are the areas of interest?
Here are some possible imaginary spaces...
the anthropology of science, technology, and computing (what I call
anthro-of-STC); examples might include ethnographies of defense
installations, computer labs, video production studios, or so forth...
speculations about future technologies and their potential human impacts
(what I call anthrofuturism) - examples might be space colonization,
virtual reality, genetic engineering, life extension, androids, etc...
the anthropology of net.culture/cyberculture/virtual culture (what I call
cyberanthropology) - examinations of sociocultural, linguistic, or even
political (censorship, access, privacy, control, equity, etc.) dynamics of
various parts of cyberspace, such as MUDs/MOOs, the Web, Internet Relay
Chat, electronic newsmedia, Usenet, BBSes, online services, etc.
discussions of anthropological concepts and concerns found in science fiction...
discussions of ways to that technological methods are affecting the social
sciences for good or ill - content analysis software, CD-ROM, video editing
equipment, online databases, etc...
"human factors" (or their neglect thereof) in technological design...
you get the idea, run what you've got by us, if any of this even sounds
remotely like what your stuff is about.
Who do you have to be?
We primarily want to publish the work of students interested in the areas
that the IS covers. That means mostly graduate students - they're the only
ones who really care about being published anyway - but we'll certainly
take stuff from undergrads and postdocs, and maybe even members of the
professoriate, if you ask nicely. You don't have to be in anthropology -
but you need to be familiar with some of the concepts of the social
sciences. And oh yeah, we'll even take stuff from people outside the
academy. The main requirement is interest in the subjects of the journal,
and an ability to present theories about them cogently and clearly.
What do you have to do?
We would ultimately like all submissions to be in plain-Ascii HTML format.
You can easily do this using "vanilla" editors like Emacs or BBEdit, or one
of the specialized HTML editors for Mac/DOS/Unix/etc. We ask people to
follow our style guide.  If your submission is of a
multimediac nature, we ask all accompanying sounds, images, video, etc. to
be in Mosaic-friendly file formats. All linked documents and files should
then be compressed into an archive and deposited in our ftp inbox. But
What do you have to tell us first?
We want to first see a pre-HTML abstract of the work. Tell us whether you
want your work to go in the "Perspectives and Offerings" section or the
"Main Engine" section. If it's just for Perspectives and Offerings (we
expect things for this area to be short), we'll look over the abstract and
tell you whether it's going in the current IS or not... or if we don't want
it at all. If it's for the Main Engine, we'll ask you (if we like the
abstract) for the document, and then the whole text will be peer-reviewed
(mostly by the editorial board, but perhaps some outside review as well)
and then sent back to you with suggestions for revisions, corrections, etc.
If you've got things you want to see "in print" fast, send 'em to P & O; if
you want the benefits of the formal scholarly process (as well as the
delays), tell us it's for ME...
If we like your stuff, we give you the ftp address. DO NOT MAIL SUBMISSIONS
TO THE JOURNAL ADDRESS. We will not take anything that way.
What if you're Web-challenged?
We'll take non-HTML ASCII too, even without any attached files or
hyperlinks or anchors. We ask people to use HTML if at all possible,
because if we HTMLize your document, it won't have your own individual
'touch'... however, these submissions must still go through the same
process. We look over the abstract, then you ftp the document into the IS
inbox if we like it.
What do we want for the Main Engine?
Stuff for Perspectives and Offerings can be experimental, multimediac in
nature, basically "anthing goes" - within reason. Mainly, things for P & O
should be short - less than 1200 words.
For the Main Engine, things are more formal. We expect you to follow the
style guide closely; not to use images spuriously (but inlined charts,
tables, graphs, and diagrams are always a plus); to use footnotes,
citations, cross-references (to other documents on the Net), and a
bibliography; to have a table of contents that links to anchors in the
document; and to be prepared to deal with the commentary and response
structure that will build up around your documents... also, if you're
describing a certain phenomenon on the net (say, a particular MOO or BBS),
we ask you to give 'directions' for other cyberanthropologists to go there
and do their own "fieldwork"...
Got all that? Got an abstract for us to take a look at? Send it to
Topothesia@rice.edu, and give us some time to look it over. We'll get back
to you shortly.

News from the IPPE -- 7 Mar 95
World Wide Web access redesigned
-------------------------------- In support of the mission of the
International Philosophical Preprint Exchange to facilitate the exchange
of working papers between philosophers world-wide, Carolyn Burke of the
IPPE has recently redesigned our World Wide Web access, making it much
easier to use, and enabling philosophers to locate papers of interest to
them in the IPPE's collection with greater ease than ever before.
The IPPE's World Wide Web service supplements the previous methods of
access via Gopher, ftp, and automated email (see the end of this
newsletter for details on all these access methods).
The IPPE's WWW service is available by opening the URL
http://phil-preprints.L.chiba-u.ac.jp/IPPE.html using Netscape, Mosaic,
Lynx, or any other WWW browser (we recommend Netscape).
Status Report
------------- The IPPE continues to enjoy a rate of access of
over 100 users per day at our main site in Japan.  Additional
accesses to the many North American and European sites mirroring the
IPPE collection probably greatly exceed this number, but are difficult
to quantify.
In addition, the rate of submissions to the IPPE has climbed steeply in
recent weeks.  We are delighted by this trend, and encourage all
philosophers to submit their manuscripts to the IPPE in order to benefit
from the commentary of their peers.
Call for Volunteers
------------------- The IPPE seeks motivated and enthuiastic volunteers
to assist in the areas of administration, publicity, and technical
support.  We especially seek persons able to carry out some or all of
the following tasks:
  - liason with the IPPE's international user population of professional
    philosophers, graduate students, the editorial staffs of
    philosophical journals, and the staffs of other on-line projects
    in the humanities and social sciences
  - editorial work on the newsletter and publicity materials
  - administrative activities (regarding funding, etc.)
  - computer support work: UNIX and CGI scripting and related activities.
The IPPE Staff
Coordinators:  Dr. Syun Tutiya (Chiba University) and Dr. Richard Reiner
               (visiting in '95 at the Center for Philosophy of Science,
               University of Pittsburgh).
Adminstrator:  Carolyn L Burke (CMU).
Board members: Dr. George Gale (University of Missouri, Kansas City), Andrew
               Burday (McGill University), Istvan Berkeley (University of
               Alberta), Stephen Rice (York University).
Accessing the IPPE
To access the IPPE, proceed as follows:
By www:    Open the URL http://phil-preprints.L.chiba-u.ac.jp/IPPE.html
By gopher: Use Gopher to go to either apa.oxy.edu or kasey.umkc.edu
By ftp:    ftp to either Phil-Preprints.L.Chiba-U.ac.jp, or

Subject:      IS0 12083
I am marking up some electronic journals with ISO 12083 and have run
into a few problems.
I cannot seem to find a tag in the serial dtd for editor nor for an editor
of a special issue.  Also, under the citation tag there is no element for title
only for serial title.  I found this a bit odd.  Is this correct?
Is there  a dtd for indexes?
Does anybody know of a source that may give me some insight?
Thanks in advance.

        How Many Records for Remote Access Serials?
     Thanks to all who responded to our earlier posting.  As
promised, we have prepared some hypothetical records for serials
issued in multiple *electronic document formats,* a term that
seems less problematic than *versions.*  We selected two
different titles and cataloged each of them two different ways.
First we cataloged each title with all document formats
represented on one record.  Then we created separate records for
different formats.  We chose this approach partly as an
exercise in seeing how feasible each alternative was and what the
resulting records might look like, and also to stimulate as open
a discussion as possible.  We remain aware of the possibility
that the one record approach might work best in some cases and
multiple records might be required in others.
     Please note that in creating these *hypothetical* records we
have also had to create some new kinds of qualifiers and notes
and use some of the computer file fields newly available in the
serials format before policies and practices have been fully
worked out.  So, please don't use these  records as examples of
fully developed CONSER, LC, or ISSN practice.  Finally, almost
all of these records are based on NSDP records, they do not
include subject headings and are encoding level *7.*

Re:     NewJour Searchable Archive Available
From:   The Moderators
NEWJOUR, the on-line service reporting new electronic (Internet)
journals and newsletters to the academic community, is almost two years
old and has reported on over 200 different publications.  After
the New Year, the list moved from its first site at the American
Mathematical Society to the University of Pennsylvania.  The new list
mechanism at the University of Pennsylvania is stable and running
smoothly now (reminders below how to unsubscribe and subscribe).
We are happy to announce that we now have a searchable archive of all
NEWJOUR postings since the list began in 1993.  The archive is available
by gopher (bookmark and somewhat lengthy URL below) from the server of
the Center for Computer Analysis of Texts and has been made possible by
the wizardry of Michael Nenashev, sysop at CCAT.  The archive itself was
prepared by the tireless Lisabeth King of the Association of Research
There is a WAIS-indexed search function, via which you can ask for all
the reports with a particular word (e.g., psychology, and get a quick
listing of titles to view.  Please feel free to add this link to your
gopher and WWW pages; it will continue to grow with each new NEWJOUR
(Postings for NEWJOUR may be sent to me directly or to the list address
nj@ccat.sas.upenn.edu -- all postings moderated.)

Subject:      Re: Multiple versions for remote access serials
From:     Jean Hirons, Acting CONSER Coordinator, Library of
Subject:  Multiple versions for remote access serials
Date:     March 16, 1995
Thanks to Bill, Les, Regina, and Melissa for all of their hard
work on this issue.  In the interests of generating discussion,
I would like to express my opinion that we should keep all remote
versions on one record.  While this may be a change from our past
practice of describing differences in content as separate
"editions," I feel that this medium requires a somewhat different
approach.  Here are my reasons for favoring one record:
1.  I think one record will better serve our users.  One record,
with appropriate instruction as to the availability of different
formats and modes of access, will serve better than multiple
records.  I find the examples of one record to be clear and
consise and I don't think the multiple records add anything.  I
don't think we have to tell our users just what the differences
are, and quite frankly, for serials, this is probably impossible
to keep accurate.
2.  Creating separate records, causes unnecessary complications
for the cataloging: uniform title qualifiers, links, notes, and
edition statements.  There are already distinctions in these
records between note and linking tags (530 vs. 580, 775 vs. 776)
that I find to be needlessly confusing.  If we create one record
for all remote formats and link to other formats (CD, paper,
etc.) it will be much clearer.
3.  Creating separate records requires the cataloger to
distinguish "significant" changes in content that may be
difficult to determine.  In addition, these differences may
change over time.  For example, we found one serial where the Web
format did not have any appreciable difference from the other
formats.  In this case, all formats would be kept on one record.
But is it not possible that in time, as the publisher becomes
more sophisticated, that the Web version might become very
4.  The addition of new formats with later issues can cause
confusing descriptions.  Note the last example of Postmodern
culture (World Wide Web) which began with Vol. 4, no. 2 (Jan.
1994).  By creating a separate record, we are forced to have a
different beginning date.  The 515 note is meant to cover this,
but I don't think it is terribly clear.  I still find myself
looking for a 780 field!  I'm sure that formats will come and go
and trying to keep all of this straight on different records,
linked to other records, could become a bibliographic nightmare.
These are my thoughts.  I urge you all to share yours so that we
in CONSER can develop a working resolution to this very critical

Subject:      Digital Libraries Symposium - Japan
             Call for Papers and Participation
   ISDL'95: International Symposium on Digital Libraries 1995
                    August 22 - 25, 1995
       University of Library and Information Science
             Tsukuba Science City, Ibaraki, Japan
   Sponsored by: University of Library and Information Science
The issue of digital libraries is key to making global information
super-highways really work. Many digital libraries cannot be realized
without the integration of various information technologies. Social,
cultural and human aspects are also important in the implementation of
digital libraries.  ISDL'95 will offer a forum for researchers,
engineers, librarians, information scientists, and users, all of whom have
different backgrounds, but who share equally an interest in digital
Symposium topics will include:
 * Digital library networks based on high-speed wide-area network technology,
 * Storage, communication and delivery of multimedia data,
 * Digitization and database construction, using printed materials from the
   social sciences, the humanities, and the natural sciences,
 * Creation, storage, retrieval, and usage of multimedia,
 * Information visualization and user interfaces,
 * The digital library as a collection of materials and a collection
   of information,
 * The digital library as an environment to support intellectual
   activities, and
 * Roles of, and restrictions on, digital libraries in communities.
The symposium will include invited talks and contributed paper presentations.

  TDR is a quarterly journal that explores the diverse world of performance.
  How does this relate to you? The journal emphasizes the intercultural,
  inter-disciplinary and spans numerous geographical areas and historical
  periods. TDR addresses performance issues of every kind: theatre, music
  dance, entertainment, media, sports, politics, aesthetics of everyday
  life, games, play and ritual. TDR is for people in the performing arts,
  the social sciences, academics, activists and theorists -- anyone
  interested in thinking about the "performance" paradigm.
  The journal is edited by Richard Schechner of the Department of
  Performance Studies, New York University, and is published quarterly
  by The MIT Press. Although TDR is not yet an electronic journal, you
  can browse through sample articles available on-line through the

Request for information
Telepublishing State of the Art (ELPUB104)
TFPL Ltd have been commissioned to undertake a Telepublishing survey as part
of a series of studies supporting an initiative launched by the Telematics
Applications Programme - Information Engineering (IE) Sector. This programme
is part of the European Commission's Fourth Framework programme.
For the purpose of this study Telepublishing is defined as:
   digitised information distributed over a wide area network to the consumer
         (books, journals, magazines, and emerging products).
The objectives of the study are to
-  catalogue all relevant experiments, trials and programmes on a world-wide
-  note the needs of the publishing community
-  identify the most important characteristics of such research and pilot
   projects, including user requirements and results
-  identify those initiatives that fall within the scope of IE and the results
   available for integration into new projects
-  enumerate those results which have particular relevance to IE application
   pilot projects
The work will include research and development work support by international,
national or private funding; undertaken by national bodies, academic
institutes, professional bodies, research organisations and commercial
organisations where the outcomes are publicly available. We are keen to hear
from any one involved in, or who knows of projects in these area. If you can

remit, IE propose to fund a number of pilot applications with the purpose of
assisting the development of a competitive European 'Superhighway'
infrastructure and products to match the innovations taking place in the US
and Pacific Rim. A preliminary programme, Exploratory Actions in Multimedia
Publishing 1994-95, is supporting of a number of feasibility studies covering
areas such as:
- Multimedia technologies for electronic newspapers;
- Multimedia broking;
- Corporate multimedia information systems - technical documentation
- Sharing cultural heritage through multimedia telematics
 - On-line commercial technical publishing service
In order to ensure that the feasibility studies and pilot applications build
on developments already underway or available, and that the proposed
applications meet identified needs, 9 supporting studies have been
commissioned to support and inform this stage. The following list of studies
demonstrates that the concerns of the studies and feasibility studies cover
technology, economic, commercial and non-commercial issues.

    H-Net wins NEH grant for Multimedia Humanities Education
         H-Net and Michigan State University announce the award of a
    new grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities
    (Education Division), for $190,000 for two years.  Entitled
    "Creating the History Classroom of the 21st Century," the grant
    is directed by Mark Kornbluh (History, Michigan State
    University). The grant will pursue 5 activites.
    1. Create H-MMedia as a permanent electronic channel of
       communication  to provide scholars, teachers, publishers, and
       programmers with news of the development of new teaching
       resources and archives, reviews of software, and continuing
       reports on research in progress. H-MMEDIA's objectives are to
       stimulate interest within the history profession in the
       application of new technologies in  order to increase student
       learning and build skills, and give scholars who are developing
       new teaching methods a forum in which to report their
       accomplishments and to discuss the significance and implications
       of their projects. H-MMEDIA is now in operation; subscription
       requests should be sent to LISTSERV@msu.edu.
    2. Assist history faculty, nationwide, to use multimedia technology,
       electronic communication, and computers in teaching,
    3. Establish a national center at Michigan State University and
       seven regional centers to develop teaching materials and
       multimedia curricula for  history survey courses, collect and
       disseminate software and data bases, provide technical
       assistance, and host training sessions. The regional Centers
       are at Austin Peay State University [Tennessee], Chicago
       Historical Society, University of Houston, University of
       Texas-San Antonio, University of California-Los Angeles,
       University of Virginia, and University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
    4. Survey applications of electronic and multimedia technologies
       in teaching and sponsor in-depth evaluations of tools and
    5. Hold a conference in summer 1996 in East Lansing to bring
       together technology specialists, master teachers, and curriculum
       innovators to instruct each other in the most effective ways of
       using new technologies to teach basic historical skills to first
       and second-year college history students.

        Ghostview is freeware, I believe, and works very well, in my

You might have to spend some time taking care of X11 library version

Subject:      Global market size
The various multimedia hardware platforms have achieved very
dissimilar levels of market penetration in different parts
of the world. That is the conclusion of Screen Digest's
attempt in its March 1994 issue to provide country-by-
country data of the in-home, installed base for the main
CD-ROM-equipped personal computers have shown the fastest
growth, with the European market now growing even faster
than the US. Within Europe, Germany now has by far the
largest installed base, followed by the UK, France and
While there were over 15 million multimedia PCs (including
Macintosh) in the world's homes by the end of 1994, the
global total of dedicated CD-based consoles of all formats
(CD-i, 3DO, Sega CD, Saturn, PlayStation) had reached just
under 4.5 million.
This is against a backdrop of rapidly declining markets for
8-bit cartridge video game platforms and a worldwide slowing
in the growth of the 16-bit active installed base.
With the high profile format battle for the next generation
Digital Video Disc system now intensifying, the prospects
for the existing MPEG-1-based Video CD format look more
doubtful. Even so, Video CD has quickly emerged as an
important cross-platform standard for publishers - with a
global in-home installed base of some 780,000 Video CD-
compatible machines by end-1994 (comprising CD-i with
Digital Video cartridge, multimedia PCs with MPEG board,
dedicated Video CD players).
Amongst other specific findings of 'Interactive
Entertainment: The global hardware market base' in the March
1995 issue of Screen Digest:
* the worldwide active installed base of 16-bit cartridge
consoles still grew by over a third in 1994 to over 57
* the global active installed base of 8-bit machines has
declined year-on-year since 1991
* the CD-i format grew much faster in Europe than the US
during 1994, while the competing 3DO system achieved its
main success in Japan
* the new 32-bit systems from Sega and Sony have started
well in Japan.
The survey gives complete country-by-country in-home
installed base estimates for PC, PC/CD-ROM, CD-i, 3DO, Video
CD, Sega Master System, Sega MegaDrive/Genesis, Sega
MegaCD/SegaCD, Sega 32X, Sega Saturn, Nintendo NES, Nintendo
SNES, Sony PlayStation.

source of intelligence and analysis on all aspects of the new and
old screen media.

respondents; the survey will not be sent to anyone by e-mail.

Subject:      GNU PDF Reader
Does anyone know of any public domain PDF browser in the works?  I realize
Acrobat is now free, but I remember back when it was not that a group had
plans to create a public domain browser for the format.  Our organization
uses two non-supported UNIX platforms, and it does not appear that Adobe plans
to support additional environments any time soon.
My most pressing concern is for Computer Science students here at VPI who
will be trying to use our Electronic Reserve system with DEC workstations.
Any leads would be most appreciated.

Dear Professor Balaban:
I have posted your appeal. Two possible sources are the Soros
Foundation, which is committed to democratising knowledge, and UNESCO,
which is committed to making knowledge available to less wealthy
countries electronically.
It is certainly short-sighted of the Russian Foundation to decline
your project as "too unusual," because it is just this sort of
unusualness that could produce benefits greatly in excess of the
relatively tiny cost of support.
Let me know if there is anything I can do tro help.
