I downloaded a summary of the first 30 results for your viewing pleasure:


To help protect the responders, I hid the files that contain identifying 
information (names and emails).  For those who want to do an in-depth 
analysis of results, they can be downloaded in a variety of formats:

CSV Format
Spreadsheet Format
XML Format
HTML Format
PDF Format

so email me if you are interested.

I paid for a month's subscription (mostly for the downloads, but also in 
case we get more than 100 responses).  So I figure I'll let the survey 
run about three weeks.

BTW, because Zeldman linked directly to the survey, I think that has 
skewed results, but in a good way (toward newer users, more front-end 
developers, more ALA users).  The open-ended questions have actually 
yielded some good (and entertaining) feedback IMO.

over and out.


PS: This one is about quality (open ended responses) rather than 
quantity, but just to compare, Cody sent out a "40 question" survey 
December 2 or 3, 2001
when thelist had 2,500 subscribers.
Within 48 hours we had approx 250 responses

I don't recall ever seeing the responses or summary though...
& I don't know if we've done any other surveys...
