========== About BEYOND PRODUCTIVITY ==========
_Beyond Productivity_ examines the dynamic intersection of
information technology with the world of the arts and design. This
intersection has already yielded results of significant cultural and
economic value, including innovative architectural and product
designs, computer animated films, computer music, computer
games, interactive art installations, cross-cultural experimentation,
and Web-based texts. However, many opportunities for new
collaborative ventures remain to be explored.

The study that produced _Beyond Productivity_ and this
symposium are sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation.
