Hello,
I am conducting a survey as part of an MA course in Technical
Authorship. If you have a few minutes please answer the questions below.

To maintain your privacy please make sure that you respond to me
directly at:

Survey -at- comity -dot- demon -dot- co -dot- uk

and make sure that your reply is not being copied to a list of
correspondents.

Note that this e-mail ends with a line of asterisks (*); if you do not
receive the entire survey and would still like to respond please e-mail
directly for the complete text.

The simplest way to complete the first part of the survey is to delete
all the answers that do not apply to you. Some later questions will need
a typed answer indicated by a #.
