Greetings to Students across the USA:
I am working on a project to compile a phone book for college/university
students. The unique characteristic of this registry will be that it
includes interests/hobbies that can be queried - so you can easily find
other students who have similar interests as you, and begin correspondence.
To make this a success, I need EVERYONE to respond!
Spread the word! Make copies of this message and have ALL of your friends
To respond, fill out the form below, and reply via email. It is very important
that you use the form as it is below, because I have a program to parse all
of the information. Just fill in your data and return this whole message
as it is.
Note: to anyone who has too much time on their hands and wants to mess this up
by sending phony names, I have included in my program a "detective" to search
for phony names and exclude them. Duplicates will also be discarded. So don't
waste your time!
The end result of this effort will probably a system like this:
You send mail requesting all of the different categories and available values
for each category on file. You only have to do this once.
Then you send mail requesting a list of all students who have X value in Y
category. For example, who live in a certain state, or are in a particular
major, or have a certain hobby.
Now you have a list of people with interests similar to your own, with whom
you can correspond.
OK, here is the form. Fill in as many of the fields as you can. Simply
overwrite the sample entries:
