RhetNet used to have some space at Hypertext Hotel, thanks to the kindness of Tom Meyer, archwizard. We had hoped to use space on the MOO to explore the rhetorical possibilities for converging hypertext and realtime discussion. We haven't done much there, and HotelMOO seems to be undergoing some changes so it may not be the right site any more, but the potential is screaming to be tapped. Perhaps we'll find another MOO soon and give it another go.

RhetNet Gopher

Bowling Green's English Department agreed early on to let RhetNet have space on its gopher server. The RhetNet subdirectory has been maintained by Steven Krause and John Clark. However, we've never really managed to make good use of that space. If anybody has ideas, please let us know! (wleric@showme.missouri.edu) Files there currently include:

  • About RhetNet Archive (Readme File, updated October 94) [file]
  • Composition Program (U. of CA, Irvine) [link]
  • Essay: The Rhetorical Nature of Academic Research Funding [file]
  • Gender Original [file: unedited MBU-L discussion thread]
  • How to get to the 'Web with 'telnet' [file]
  • Usage guidelines for RHETNT-L [file]
  • Writing Center Consultation Project (Roane State CC, U. of AK-Little Rock) [link]
