Hi everyone,

Notes from todays TF call below.

@Bill @Tim I'm not actually sure whether we'd decided to split Q4. It
seemed that way when cleaning up my notes.

Thanks again to everyone for their comments!

Have a good weekend,
Peter.

* feedback  from IG was good -- thanks everyone!
* Tim: long but it's good
  * Bill: +1
* re Ivan: humanities and social science not explicitly included
  * b/c aligned with common interpretations of "STEM"
* Tim: 30 questions would be better but couldn't find anything worth
cutting.

[[going through survey]]
* intro
  * Tim: identify sections
  * me: add note in intro & on every multi-choice that it's desired.
* Tim: q3 before q2?
    * => agreed
* 3 subject areas:
  * add: STEM Education
  * add: Computer Science  (h/t Ivan)
  * add: Other (Library Science, Social Science, humanity) (Please add
comment!)
* 4 => split
  * "audience" instead of "target audience" (what are you part of / do you
target)
    * add list of audiences -- h/t Tzviya!
  * "platform do you use / or target to publish
    * print
    * tablet
    * desktop
    * ebooks
* 7 => split
  * on the web => on the web and/or web-based platforms [check what Qs can
use this change]
  * split:
    * do you publish
    * where is that technology at for you?
* 9 -- add parenthetical examples
  * Tim: had different understanding: is it just linking?
     * no: primarily modification/extension/etc.
  * agreement that that focus is ok
  * add parenthetical examples
* 13
  * me: add tables (often turned into images)
  * Tim: add webCSV
  * SVG
  * make larger list
     * link to / use 5
* 15
  * add examples: massive collaboration (zooniverse, LHC, polymath)
* 16:
  * turn "None" to "Does not apply / unable (leave a comment!)"
* 17
  * "Add comment" =>  "Please add a comment on tools you use"
* 18:
  * add "office documents" (word processing, spreadhseet documents)
  * add: web platforms (wiki, blogs, source repositories (GItHub,
BitBucket), specialized repositories (Zenodo, Figshare))
* 21
  * <br> if not why not? Which disadv...
* 23
  * What web and web-related standards ...
  * First item: W3C standards (HTML, CSS, SVG, MathML etc)
  * [peter while making minutes: stress call for adding comments]
* 27. Clarify to something like:
  * Why do you not author in format/tech that you want to read?
  * Why do you not consume in the format people author?
* 32
  * rephrase to something like "What is the state of the art in a11y in
your subject area?"
