  • MEDNEWS Questionnaire -- please fill out!

    Dear Irene, dear Biomch-L readers,

    Thanks for your first posting onto the list; I look forward to many more to

    When Irene and I discussed her activities, I suggested to start by posting a
    mixed set of items, and to sollicit the readership's comments on this. This
    is exactly what she has done, and I hope that all readers will spend a little
    time in filling out the mini-questionnaire below. Please state for each item:

    (I) level of perceived Interest (I);
    (S) level of belonging to the Scope (S) of Biomch-L as embodied in the
    list's name and as grown de facto
    since its inception about 2.5 years ago.

    Mark your preference on a 1 ... 5 scale (1 is worst, 5 is best), by placing
    codes Im and Sm (e.g., I3, S5) behind the titles below; please mail your
    response to Irene or to me in private (unless to want to go public on the
    list). We'll process the data and will post a summary conclusion. Please
    reply also the last question, on whether such a questionnaire would be useful
    in future selections from MEDNEWS onto this list?

    I should add that I did not discuss this `formalised' approach with Irene
    beforehand; it is motivated by experiences earlier this week on an other list
    at which a certain modification on posting conventions was proposed; the
    resulting debate was rather uncoordinated, I might say. Rather than first
    discussing this approach with her (by which time her first posting might
    have been discarded by many readers), I decided to post this questionnaire
    approach straight away.

    When I checked the Biomch-L membership database yesterday, I we were at
    298 subscribers ... I hope for a substantial number of replies.

    Thanks and regards -- Herman J. Woltring, Eindhoven/NL
