Sorry labmembers,

Maybe I fibbed...  (like, would you read this email otherwise?)  But I 
am not lying when I say that "we NEED your feedback!"  and may very well

some action items will come from this (imagine:  your vote matters!)

about it: will your research lead to the next technical revolution? Will 
it have the legacy of penicillin or asbestos? Will it improve national 
security or will destroy privacy? Or, closer to home, what do you think 
and what do you do when you see someone cheating in the lab? These 
questions and more in the SEI survey

these surveys, you are eligible for either:  1.  an authentic, Stanford 
red, retractable SNF ball point pen; 2.  a nifty clip-on SNF calculator 
(in Stanford red, of course.)  So please, do a favor for the labmember 
community and fill out these surveys (and then drop to pick up your
