8 Scenario #2 Professor Watkins at Boyko University, a good and loyal data user with whom you have a good relationship based on a long history of data use, mentions over coffee that his book on using data in the classroom is almost ready to be sent to the publisher. He smiles engagingly and says that you will be mentioned in the acknowledgements for providing all those great data sets used in the examples in the textbook. DLI

9 Scenario #2 As he offers to top up your coffee and puts a cherry Danish in front of you, he mentions that it is remarkable how technology has changed the teaching world. He can now include a CD-ROM with datasets used in the book, though having the data sets available on the publishers website is also sure to please students. DLI
