Integrated Telematic Services and Communication Through Scientific IRC: Virtual User Communities of Biomedicine in UNInet

Re^2: Symposium 209


Dr. Coma del Corral:  The issue that I am raising is that the converted can not impartially evaluate the success or failure of an experiment unless criteria for this are defined at the outset.  What is the evidence that this mode of communication has produced anything meaningful.  How do we define it and how do we measure it?

>>Dr. Coma del Corral: Great presentation.  Hope you have fun at the meeting.  The problem I have is that I don't know whether UniNet is simply a toy for the few who like it or it is a real experiment in communication.  If it is the latter, I would have liked to see who, when and how are going to analyze any data resulting from it.

>We have successful hold scientific conferences, presentations, congresses, discussions, and workshops in UniNet.  And we have learnt that the most important isn't the tool, but the high quality of  the scientific work that UniNet is helping to communicate.
