6e2 Technology Survey Results

At the time this survey was done (...), a wide range of email packages was being used, with Netscape Mail being the most commonly used package at 10 out of the 33 respondents.  Netscape was the dominant web browser and Excel was the dominant spreadsheet.  Word processing was split evenly between Word and WordPerfect.  Given the strong emphasis placed on the use of technology in the Leadership program, this diversity in personal productivity tools presents a challenge to participants as they attempt to collaborate and communicate with others in their Regional Group, the larger body of participants and the faculty.
