Alaska data – Day 1

May 5th, 2004

I read all the Day 1 surveys today and started to identify illustrative quotes, figure out patterns, and basically get started on the analysis. I present in my Comparitive Inquiry coure tomorrow, so that is pushing me to at least get started. I’m also mailing back the copies tomorrow – I noticed that only half of the participants wanted copies back – that means something. What? That the process was “enough” and the writing was really “extra” for folks – they would have learned/benefitted as much without the writing? Or that the kinds of questions I asked didn’t generate responses that they were interested in reviewing again? I’m just wondering if there is a way to make it feel more useful to individuals – so its not a matter of doing it “just” for the research process, but also for personal/professional benefit. If any of you want to post a comment explaining your experience of the writing and suggestions for how I could improve on that, I’d be grateful!
Here’s the raw numbers I’m working with:

    I just wanted to write to let you know I’ve been periodically following your thoughts and discussions on this web site (you gave me the address sometime last year). I find the discussions intriguing, worthy of response. I hope this finds you well, have missed talking to you, but I enjoy reading the posts very much.
