On a tangentially related point, has anyone found my Knowledge Quest column 
on "Policy and Data Resources on the Web" (intermittent since 2004) of any 
interest or use? I am thinking of expanding on that subject, to book 
length. Such a project only makes sense if there is an actual audience for 
such information. Curiously enough, some recent discussion on an American 
Political Science Association list (Information Technology and Politics, 
ITP) suggests another audience besides school librarians -- IF the latter 
really is an interested audience.

For an example of the column, see

Comments (pro and . . . sigh . . . con) invited. Please send to  Thanks.
