>Dear Associate of the Arts:
>We are pleased to announce the first in a series of Virtual Seminars
>by the accomplished artist, Kenneth R. Turner. A Virtual Seminar is
>a professional presentation using your favorite HTML Browser on your
>personal computer and accessing audio via your telephone. To
>synchronize multiple sites around the world the only quesions
>allowed during the Virtual Seminar are by means of an On-Line
>Dialogue Page. However, all unanswered questions will be addressed
>in an open question and answer period following the Virtual Seminar
>presentation. The first synergism Virtual Seminar is Wednesday,
>07 August 1996 at 2:00 PM CDT. You and up to 4 of your colleagues
>can participate from anywhere in the world, just by having access
>to the World-Wide-Web and a speaker telephone.
>The title of the introductory synergism Virtual Seminar is:
> 1. The Philosophy of Synergism in Kenneth R. Turner's Art
>Future Virtual Seminars in this series include:
> 2. Synergism in Art; An Historical Perspective of Major Movements;
> Thursday, 29 August 1996, 2:00 PM CDT.
> 3. How Art Reflects the Synergism in Modern Society;
> Thursday, 26 September 1996, 2:00 PM CDT.
> 4. Where Art has Ceased to be Synergistic by becoming a Business;
> Thursday, 24 October 1996, 2:00 PM CDT.
> 5. Why Art is a Window to A Synergistic World;
> Thursday, 21 November 1996, 2:00 PM CST.
> 6. How Synergistic Art Reflects the Combining of the
> Intellectual and the Spiritual;
> Thursday, 19 December 1996, 2:00 PM CST.
>Anyone can participate by calling 1-800-272-5663, and giving the
>operator a credit card number to cover your portion of the
>conference call costs (at 34 cents per minute this is approximately
>$20 per Virtual Seminar in the USA, or about $1.05 per minute
>from London and $1.34 per minute from Auckland). Conference Call
>Services will give you the specific rate for your phone call and
>a Meet-Me-Code, and this number becomes your key to join the
>Virtual Seminar. The number of lines available are limited, and
>so we encourage you to make arrangements for participation at your
>earliest possible convenience. We will make a digital recording
>of the Virtual Seminar and it will be available using the same
>process described above, but at about double the phone charge, for
>one week following the Virtual Seminar.
>With the Meet-Me-Number, you can participate by either:
> (A) reviewing the presentation in real-time (or in advance) by
> going to: http://www.walden3d.com/S1 or
> (B) downloading an ELectronic DOcument (ELDO) to have a mirror
> image of the HTML ELDO presentation at your site.
>If you choose Option A, you risk missing some or all of the
>presentation during the teleconference, because of Murphey's laws
>of network problems and instability.
>Guaranteed performance in bringing up Virtual Seminar materials will
>occur if you have a mirror copy of the presentation HTML ELDO files
>at your site. To obtain instructions on downloading Ken Turner's first
>Synergy Virtual Seminar send an e-mail to info@xxxxxxxxxxxx prior to
>4:00 PM CDT on Tuesday, 06 August 1996. The cost for obtaining the
>mirrored files is $40 per seminar (or a discounted $200 for the first
>set of six seminars described above) plus your portion of the
>Conference Call charges. In order to have your own personal ELDO,
>these funds must be received in advance, by check, Purchase Order, or
>wire transfer. Depending on the number of participants, we hope to
>provide a CD (Compact Disk) to all subscribers who purchase the first
>six synergism Virtual Seminar ELDOs at the discounted rate.

>determining if you are interested in participating. Again the URL is
>http://www.walden3d.com/S1. Please tell your friends about this
>Virtual Seminar and invite them to join around your workstation and
>speaker phone for a joint participation. The material being presented
>is wonderful, and it is worth the price of a book to have a your own
>personal ELDO to show friends and use as the basis of discussions
>with others about the Age of Synergism.
>Thank you for your time and we hope you will be able to join us.
