When I say 'crappy,' I mean 'no e-mail access' crappy - and I would
like to focus on spreading awareness in the workplace rather than
throwing away time there talking to people that are already involved.
(I'm willing to respect the value of the work I do, aside from the
promotion of commercialism: I just don't like the skewed expectations
to reward!) The pamphlet is a good idea, though a recommended outline
from someone with more time would be appreciated. It'll probably have
to be modified a bit to account for differences in workplaces, but a
starter format would make that a bit easier.
