To everyone out there in cyber land who expressed interests in our
oral history project, It's still alive and perking if not very fast. Due
to some computer problems in our school district, it's sort of wait
and see. But that gives us time to plan things out well. (I'm trying
to look on the positive side of this thing) I really want to test my
students out on some simpler computer research first. So, when the
computers are on line I can get them into the lab to test things out.

At present I have some research (history of oral history) that you might
want to look over on my web site
if this gives you some solid ideas, jot them down an post them on the
getty list. In the mean time I believe we should each be (1) drafting
20 questions our students might ask the artists. (2) formulating a
for selecting who to interview. Post these on the getty list, and we
see if our thinking is on the same wavelength.

I don't want people to think I've dropped the ball on this. In fact I
signed up
for a once a week "research on the internet class" just to pursue this very
topic. It is a year long class, hopefully we can shoot for the 1st of
the year
as a target to hit the ground running. Let me hear your thoughts.
