Hi again Folks-->

As some of you may recall, last summer I posted a plea to the Techwr-l
list members for your experiences (positive or negative) using the
Internet and any of its tools (e.g., library databases, electronic
journals, gophers, listservs, bulletin boards, Mosaic/Netscape, WWW,
Uncover, e-mail, WAIS, and MOOs/MUDs). At that time I received an
incredible number of responses--40-- with a wonderful distribution of
approximately 50/50 academic-practitioner experiences and 50/50
male-female perspectives.

Because the data that I presented at the International Professional
Communication Conference (IPCC'94) was received so enthusiastically, I was
hoping to repeat the survey--see, Mehlenbacher, B. & Hardin, B. (1994).
"Virtual Resources for Technical Communicators: Two Studies of Writing and
Reading on the Internet. IPCC'94 Proceedings: Scaling New Heights in
Technical Communication." Banff, Alberta: IEEE International Professional
Communication Conference, 202-207.

In particular, I am interested in finding out about the tools that you
currently use to stay productive as professional technical communication
researchers and practitioners, and to hear a little about how and for what
purposes you use them to get things done at work. Brief notes sent
directly to my address, listed below, are very much appreciated in advance
(and, with luck, will become part of an article or chapter I'm putting
together this year!). Thanks in advance. Yours, Brad.
