InteLnet celebrates the "Day of Alternative
Consciousness" by hosting a chat session with Mikhail
Epstein at 8PM Eastern Daylight Time on April 21st. Join
us as we celebrate this day as well as the newly
redesigned InteLnet site at
http://www.rpi.edu/~sapief/intelnet/index.html.

InteLnet is an experimental site for the communication
of creative minds in interdisciplinary and
transdisciplinary areas. One of its branches, the Bank
of New Ideas, invites submissions of original ideas for
dissemination and discussion. Other branches include
ThinkLinks, inviting contributions on the essential
connections among remote fields of knowledge, and
InteLnetics, a project of a metadiscipline within the
humanities.

InteLnet was created by Mikhail Epstein in July of
1995. This  April, InteLnet was redesigned and expanded
to include Filipp Sapienza's Culture and Rhetoric web
site.

InteLnet has received the Social Innovations Award from
the Institute for Social Inventions in London, in the
category of "creativity," as one of "the most
imaginative, feasable and potentially transformative
schemes." Culture and Rhetoric was created in June of
1996 and featured in an issue of Kairos, an Online
Journal for Writing Teachers in Webbed Environments.

InteLnet represents an attempt to implement innovative,
multi-dimensional and multi-disciplinary ways of
thinking, an attempt to engage possibilities for
dialogue and development of novel ideas, theories, and
practices. InteLnet is inspired by Russian cultural
theory, in particular what Mikhail Epstein has
articulated as transculture. The InteLnet is in part an
attempt to realize and implement the dynamic
possibilities of a transcultural universe that are
permitted with the rich and robust nature of Internet
communication.
