My research is going along fairly smoothly; only 9 weeks to go until hand in time though! I've just begun analysing my data, and it's fascinating. I'm not sure quite how all the thoughts and opinions and facts and feelings about participative software in public libraries that I have collected is going to come together into a final report, but I feel good about it so far. I am feeling grateful for the high quality responses people have given me. People have taken the time to really consider my questions; 'what difficulties did you face in developing the participative software applications you are using' is a hard one, for instance, but people's responses have consistently surprised me and extended my thinking. I'm lucky librarians are such nice people!
