After polling everyone who contacted me about the original skype group, it looks like the best time for the group Skype discussions is Saturday, 1pm-2pm PDT. For the first week’s reading, we have been considering one of two options:
1. reading Bogaert’s 2004 paper, from which the ubiqitous “1%” figure comes, and also the recent Aicken et al. paper, which analyzes a recent followup of the same survey from which Bogaert drew his data, only years later. Since the two are both analyzing the same survey set, they pair well, but make for more reading.
2. On the other hand, we could focus on only reading Bogaert’s paper this week, which is shorter.
Any thoughts on preferences?
Also, If you want to join the skype group but haven’t been able to yet, add me on skype (username sennkestra) and I can add you in.
