Hi Folks!  I'd like to get a sense of what people are doing with PWS and
PWS-based applications such as Swiki.  My motivation is two-fold, and both
mercenary :-)
- It's tenure packet time, and I'd like to be able to say something about
where these tools are being used and for what.
- I'm working on a paper on educational uses of Swiki's due Aug. 1, and I
would like to be able to say something about uses of Swiki's in educational
settings but outside of our campus.

If you are using PWS, could you please drop me a personal note (rather than
posting to the list) at guzdial at  I'd like to know

(0) What organization are you with?

(1) What are you using PWS for?

(2) If you're using it in an education context, what classes are you using
it in?

(3) (Whether or not you're in an educational context) What's your sense of
how the use of PWS is working?  Is it successful?  Will you continue to use
it?  If unsuccessful, I'd also appreciate feedback on how it's not working
and why.

(4) Finally, if I may quote directly from your note, please let me know
that directly.  I'd appreciate being able to cite people directly.

Many thanks!
