Subject: [msgs] Globetoddler user evaluation: Looking for subjects
(traveling parents of children aged 3-6 in the Boston area)

Dear all,

After nine months of hard work I have finally reached the system evaluation
phase of my M.Sc. thesis project and I need your help to make the evaluation
as good as possible.

I have developed a toy-to-mobile phone communication platform, called *
Globetoddler* <http://globetoddlers.blogspot.com/>, that aims to connect
preschoolers with their (business) traveling parents in a novel manner, and
I am thus looking for families who fit this "profile" and are available in
June. I am first of all looking for families in which (at least) one parent
will be traveling during the evaluation period, but I am also open to
involving families where the absent/remote parent is working late/night
shifts rather than actually traveling.

*Requirements*: (1) You live in the greater Boston area, (2) you are
planning to travel without your child or work "long" shifts in June, (3) you
have at least one child aged 3-6 years, and (4) you are willing to test the
system in June.

*Reward*: $50 Amazon gift certificate.

Email me directly if you are interested or if you know somebody who is.
