CALL FOR DISCUSSION: comp.society.development
Moderated: No

Subject: This group will discuss applications of computer technology
in developing countries.  Topics might include: 
 -  specific stories of successful (and unsuccessful) uses of computers
    in developing countries
 -  general discussion of the difficulties and advantages of using
    computers in developing countries
 -  comments from developing country computer users on their experiences
 -  requests from developing country computer users for computer-related
    advice
 -  news about communications, especially networks and electronic mail,
    to and within developing countries
 -  updates from aid agencies, volunteer groups and others active in
    developing countries on computer-related projects underway or under
    consideration
 -  discussions about appropriate hardware and software
 -  general news about books, seminars, conferences, and projects

General discussions of Third World politics or economics will be avoided.

Comment: At the University of Edinburgh, we have set up a mailing list
to discuss applications of Artificial Intelligence in developing coutries.
The list is growing all the time, and now includes people from 4 continents,
so it seems there may be enough interest to justify a USENET newsgroup on
this topic.  The mailing list is restricted to AI applications, but it is
probably better for the newsgroup to cover all types of computer applications.

All discussion on this proposed group should take place in news.groups.

CALL FOR VOTES: comp.society.development   (computers in developing countries)

I issued a call for discussion for this group a month ago, and have gotten very
few suggestions for changes to the name or charter (although lots of people
sent e-mail saying they thought the group was a great idea).  So, I am now
issuing a call for votes on the original charter, with no modifications.

*************************************************************************
NAME: comp.society.development
MODERATED: No

CHARTER: This group will discuss applications of computer technology
in developing countries.  Topics might include: 
 -  specific stories of successful (and unsuccessful) uses of computers
    in developing countries
 -  general discussion of the difficulties and advantages of using
    computers in developing countries
 -  comments from developing country computer users on their experiences
 -  requests from developing country computer users for computer-related
    advice
 -  news about communications, especially networks and electronic mail,
    to and within developing countries
 -  updates from aid agencies, volunteer groups and others active in
    developing countries on computer-related projects underway or under
    consideration
 -  discussions about appropriate hardware and software
 -  general news about books, seminars, conferences, and projects

General discussions of Third World politics or economics will be avoided.

***************************************************************************

VOTING PROCEDURE:

Send an e-mail message to         [email protected]
(e.g., by replying to this posting) with one of the following subject lines:

	yes for comp.society.development
	no for comp.society.development

Please use the exact wording given above, as that will enable vote counting
to be partially automated.  The body of the message will be ignored, and
can be blank.

I will hand-count votes that do not fit the above format, but that will be
significantly more work - please use one of the above subject lines if
possible.

DEADLINE: All votes must be *received* by me by  23:59 GMT on 8-May-91.
Votes received after that date will be ignored.

WARNINGS: Do *not* post your votes to the net; such votes will be ignored.
Also, people who have already sent me e-mail saying they will vote yes/no
must send me a new message, as the original mesages were not received in the
official voting period (I'm just following USENET rules here).
     Votes will not be individually acknowledged, although I may post a mass
acknowledgement to the net (especially if it looks like messages are getting
lost in the international connections).

REQUIREMENTS: The group will be created if at least 2/3 of the votes are YES
votes, *and* there are at least 100 more YES votes than NO votes.

QUESTIONS: If you have a question, send e-mail to       [email protected]
(do *not* send questions to [email protected]).

The proposal to create  comp.society.development  (a newsgroup to discuss the
role of computers in developing countries) has PASSED.

This message includes:
-- voting summary
-- the group's charter
-- list of NO votes received
-- list of YES votes received

VOTING SUMMARY:

The voting period ended on 8 May 1991.  The following votes were received:

	 46  NO
	255  YES
	---
	301  total

This meets the USENET success criteria, as at least 2/3 of the votes were YES
votes, and there were 100 more YES votes than NO votes.  My thanks to all
those who took the time to participate in the vote.

There is now a 5-day waiting period, during which people can send corrections
if their vote was miscounted (please e-mail  reiter@castle.ed.ac.uk).
If the success criteria are still met after such corrections, the group will
be created.

In terms of comments, several people (including both Yes and No voters) said
they liked the group's charter but not its name.  Sorry about that - if I had
received as many such comments during the discussion period, I would have
tried to find something more acceptable to everyone, but unfortunately the
name cannot (usually ...) be changed during the voting period.  We can always
change the name later, if the group seems successful and the name is still a
problem.

A smaller number of people also said they would have prefered a different
position in the USENET hierarchy.  Similar comments apply, although I also
suspect there isn't any really appropriate place for such a group in the
current hierarchy.

One person also suggested some kind of link with the BITNET group DEVEL-L.
DEVEL-L has a somewhat different charter (in particular, it's much less
technical than I hope  comp.society.development  will be), and in any case the
organizers of DEVEL-L did not respond to any of my e-mail messages, so I did
not pursue this (if you want to find out about DEVEL-L and other such groups,
subscribe to comp.society.development! - when the group is created, I'll post
a list of all the related mailing lists that I know of).

CHARTER OF THE NEW GROUP:

NAME: comp.society.development
MODERATED: No

CHARTER: This group will discuss applications of computer technology
in developing countries.  Topics might include: 
 -  specific stories of successful (and unsuccessful) uses of computers
    in developing countries
 -  general discussion of the difficulties and advantages of using
    computers in developing countries
 -  comments from developing country computer users on their experiences
 -  requests from developing country computer users for computer-related
    advice
 -  news about communications, especially networks and electronic mail,
    to and within developing countries
 -  updates from aid agencies, volunteer groups and others active in
    developing countries on computer-related projects underway or under
    consideration
 -  discussions about appropriate hardware and software
 -  general news about books, seminars, conferences, and projects

General discussions of Third World politics or economics will be avoided.
