[xmca] Re: Polls are closed: Manfred Holodynsk's article is choice

My reading is very similar to yours, Martin. I wonder though, in both your
quotation from Manfred and elsewhere in the article about how consistently
the word, activity, is used. In your quoted example, is activity the word
of choice, or action? This question relates to Andy's earlier invocation of
operation/action/ activity.
