  Description:  The Synergetics Collaborative's Fourth Annual Summer Workshop
         in Oswego will focus on "Quantum Building: The First 28
         Most-Efficient-Minimum Geometrical Systems". The main workshop
         will be led by Thomas Miller who writes:
            "The workshop is about learning to clone the four
            basic cloning grids that make the volume quanta
            (Fuller's term) the 'a' module, a-b module, mite and
            't' module. We will concentrate on the first three. The
            grids become self-organizing which needs four abilities:
            self-stabilization, self-correction, self-regeneration
            and self-innovation. The overall idea is that these
            modules have a modular building system inside them and
            we will explore that system."

         In addition, there will be artifact exhibit space for participants
         and a session for participants to discuss their work.

We are on a spaceship; a beautiful one.  It took billions of years to develop.
We're not going to get another.  Now, how do we make this spaceship work?
