             Subject: The University is Dead! Long Live the University! Webcast

    "The University is Dead! Long Live the University!" is the title of a
    presentation that I am giving at the forthcoming World Future Society
    (http://wfs.org) meeting July 19-23, 2002 in Philadelphia. It is a takeoff

    This session will be Webcast courtesy of ULiveandLearn
