The Design Research team and I are always seeking to learn more about
editors and readers across the globe, and have a lot to learn....so many
places! so many people! :)
The Ghana Editor research proposal seems like it may offer us some
knowledge that would be really useful, both for product development, and to
build our our editor personas. So, it piqued my interest.
I have put some time on my calendar to read more carefully and provide some
comments, etc. for the applicants before October 19th.
Thank you for sharing!
