  • Engaging users … some thoughts on identifying with the service
    • “ It is hard to underestimate the importance of (the editing issue) as a means of satisfying authors . While there is an editing phase, it is "their" repository. Without an editing phase it is "my" repository. It provides a service for me: I put things there so that I can find them later.
    • I care much more about what is in the repository, because I have responsibility . I could go on to use words like " empowerment “…
    • The feeling of difference is enormous: instead of it being something that is an extra imposition that costs me time, it is much clearer it is a useful service that … becomes part of my working structure …”
