I can participate in the card sort at CSUN.  Probably will not be 
able to talk to anyone before hand.  I am leaving on the train on 
Sunday morning. I am being called into special meetings tomorrow that 
were not planned. No communication possible until Tuesday when I 
arrive. Anyone can catch me Tuesday night at LAX Hilton, though.

>Carol & WSTF,
>Looks like a good start to me! I'm in favor of cutting down the

>WSTF: Please send you comments to the list, including suggestions on 
>how to cut down the scope/number of cards/time.
>A few questions:
>- How do you propose to overcome the problems that folks had last 
>time we tried card sort, for example, people not understanding what 
>the documents are from the title?
>- Have you planned methods to conduct the card sort with 
>participants with various disabilities?
>- Have you thought about recruiting participants at CSUN?
>Charmane: are you interested in conducting card sorts at CSUN? Do 
>you want to talk to Carol ahead of time, or at CSUN?
>Blossom, Michael, others: are you interested in conducting card 
>sorts at CSUN? Please coordinate with Carol.

>Dear All,
>Here is my first go around at shortening the card sort list for the 
>closed card sort to be done at CSUN.  Please take a look (it's an 
>Excel Spreadsheet) - if you would like a different type of file 
>please tell me.  If you have questions about the closed card sort 
>please contact me.
>Here's a brief summary of what I've done with this file:
>- I took out references to version 2.0 for simplicities sake
>- I took out odd outliers - such as Errata
>- total of 40 cards removed - I think we can cut more.  The more we 
>cut the more we can test because time will be shortened per test.
>Here are the group names I suggest for the closed card sort - please 
>give feedback on this as well (from
