Subject: [CONTENT:724] RE: intercoder reliability
well, i have a scaled-down version of an earlier computer program
for alpha, which we used extensively here at annenberg. i have
given it to some in dire need but i am hesitant to do so as i am
right now in the process of having comprehensive reliability
analysis software written. i hope that a beta-version of it will
be available in september. although i have been disappointed
before and don't dare banking on the completion of the project,
if it comes to pass, i would need lots of people to put it to a
hard test. please write to me in the near future should you be
interested. klaus krippendorff
