Welcome to the Ring of Intellectuals, a service of SocioSphere.com. The objective of this WebRing is to link together the sites of the intellectuals, defined here as those who spend a significant proportion of their time working with their thoughts, theories, researches, etc. Other designations for this social category include the literati, clerisy, and intelligentsia.
Intellectuals can be found in many professions, including academia, journalism, and art. Of course, not everyone in these fields is an intellectual. Moreover, one may sometimes find intellectuals in the most unlikely of places. (Eric Hoffer was a longshoreman.)
To join the ring, complete the form on this page. At that point, the ring maintainer will be notified that you are in the queue. He will then visit it and decide on whether to place you in the ring.
If you are concerned that the ring's navigation bar would not neatly fit on your (main) page, what I would suggest is creating a separate page for it and providing a link at the top of that page to the main (home) page of your site. Be sure, when joining, that you register the page which will contain the navigation bar.
The Ring of Intellectuals is maintained by Mark A. Foster. If you are a glutton for punishment, you may take a look at Mark's personal bio. You may also visit the MarkFoster.NETwork Publications Portal.
