    hi everyone

    i was thinking at first of sending out a template to everyone, but i've been thinking about it and it makes more sense for me to just cut and paste into the template.

    there are a couple of things we need to decide..

    #1 - what sub-catgeories/headings should we have in each category?
    [i was thinking maybe something like RESEARCH/SIGNALS/IMPLICATIONS, etc]

    #2 - when can you all have your written pieces sent to me? Monday would be ideal so that I have a few days to piece it together and edit.

    oh and the third thing is, can someone edit/read over the Abstract, intro and conclusion that I write?

    1. Sounds like a good idea, but i'm not's a nice way to organize it but im also thinking, wouldn't it also be convenient to write abuot the implications of each signal in the same paragraph as the signal? Such as "here's the signal, imagine this is where it could go.." So we wouldn't have to start a separate column and have to repeat "Remember that signal in the previous section? This is what it's gonna imply" On the other hand a separate implications column could nicely summarize everything said and present a general view of the future. conclude - i don't know! :) Sorry for lotsa words and no help !

    2. Sure, we can read over them!

    3. By the way, do we have to compile a bibliography and source all our findings?

    yes, we have to source everything, and it wouldn't hurt to have a bibliography.

    if everyone could send me the sources they reference i will make a biblio.

    in that case, it'd be great if we had the same format. How about MLA with footnotes?

    the format Alex showed us is really simple - instead of quoting the source in detail, you just put a tag line at the bottom of the page or in brackets beside what you said..
    i think there are some in the example he sent out.
