> Greetings.
> You are receiving this e-mail because you knew Alexander "Sasha"
> Chislenko, either personally, professionally, by his e-mail list
> postings, or by reputation. Sasha died recently, and I am attempting
> to raise enough money to dedicate a reading room to him at MIT. If I
> am unable to do so, the money will be converted into a scholarship in
> Sasha's name, but I intend to give the reading room project at least 3
> years before giving up on it. If you wish to assist in some way other
> than or in addition to a donation, please let me know.
> Please feel free to pass this note on to others who knew Sasha.
> This room is intended to be for books about futurist philosophy,
> cutting-edge technology, and related scientific works, as well as
> journals and electronic information repositories about those topics. I
> am also hoping that someone who has nice film negatives of photos
> of Sasha can donate a large print portrait of him with his bright smile
> which could be hung in the room.
> I would also like to receive from all those who corresponded with him
> any papers, e-mails, and other writings you may have received from
> him which you feel are appropriate for public view - I would like as
> many of Sasha's own writings to be a part of that collection as is
> possible. Private e-mails are also useful, though if there are any
> personal rather than intellectual issues in the e-mails you are
> requested to edit them out before sending them along. This
> collection of his writings is intended to be about his philosophical,
> technical, and scientific ideas, and will be added to the reading
> room and also placed on-line.
> If you wish to donate, please send your donation to:
> Alexander "Sasha" Chislenko Memorial Fund
> c/o Stephan Vladimir Bugaj
> 265 McKibbin St. #2
> Brooklyn, NY 11206
> Please make checks payable to the Alexander "Sasha" Chislenko
> Memorial
> Fund, and NOT to me.
> Thank you.
> Live Long & Prosper,
> Stephan
