Here's a study request for the female members of the list, if you're
interested... (posted with Eric Ray's permission.)

> Invitation to participate in a
> Study on the use of the Web by Women in IT professions
>
> Women of all ages and backgrounds working in Information
> Technology professions (i.e. website designer, programmer or
> administrator/manager) are invited to participate in a 2-week long
> study on work-related use of the Web.
> Experience using the Internet and World Wide Web is required.
>
> This study is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities
> Research Council of Canada. It represents a continuation of a
> previous study on how knowledge workers use the Web to seek
> external information (i.e. information about developments in the IT
> field and information about competitors) as part of their daily work
> (Choo, Detlor and Turnbull, 1998, 1999).
> Because the study population was primarily male, it is of interest
> to investigate whether women in the IT sector have similar or
> dissimilar patterns of Web use, particularly as the number of
> women in the IT sector grows rapidly.
> Those who complete ALL parts of the study are eligible for a draw
> of $100 USD, which will be held in January 2001.
> For more information, contact Christine Marton,
