Subject:   Communication Metrics Course

Dear Joe,

Hope all is well.

Have not heard from you since your letter on July 28 when you planned to submit further analysis of Peirce's semiotics requested in my letter on July 13.

Your initial comments have been powerful and compelling in sharpening the focus on fundamentals. It would be very useful to get your further assessment based on the NWO and POIMS papers to shape a management science of Communication Metrics.

The letter on July 19 set three (3) tasks for the academic arena. Have you had a chance to consider these opportunities, to discuss them with colleagues?

Again, hope all is well and that I hear from you soon.
