SURVEY-2nd request

I'm still looking for participants for the Usenet survey I mentioned in a
couple of earlier messages.  Quite a few people have responded (THANKS!),
but the number of responses is still very low.  

To clarify a bit: this SHORT survey explores Usenet news reader response
patterns.  If you read Usenet News, you qualify as a participant.  

The survey is enclosed with this message for your convenience.  If you
wanted to participate but didn't think you were eligible, PLEASE
PARTICIPATE.  If you've already sent in your response and have other
friends you think might be willing to participate, please pass this
message along.

Results will be presented at the upcoming EDUCOM conference.  I will also
make results known to interested participants and/or generally available
on the net (depending on interest). 

Thanks again to those who have already responded--and I hope to hear from
a lot more of you out there!
