- Rather than throwing me out the door,
Steve Oksala, Don Loughry, Carl Cargill, Tom Kurihara,
Jim Burrows and the other members of the committee
invited me to join them in their deliberations. Those
early relationships led to a number of different
activities. Graduate students in my seminar on
Information Technology Standardization were allowed to
eavesdrop on committee meetings. Doors were opened
allowing thesis work on anticipatory standards,
reference models for human computer interaction,
international standardized profiles, the
characteristics of successful committee chairs, etc.

intended to be exhaustive, nor is it suggested as
the best possible division of scopes, but merely as
a starting point for the discussion.
