Results: Big Picture Reader Survey

As promised, here are the results of the survey we did on Monday.

Thank you again to everyone who participated in this survey: Over 2000 of you responded, and the results are quite intriguing. Kudos to Survey Gizmo for putting together a nice product — very simple and easy to use. (I am sure I could have done a better job if I actually read the instructions)

In many cases, I did not show the full set of answers — too many one offs to fit neatly on a web page . . .  but where possible, I gave the top few answers, down to ~1%.

When someone asked me "Who are your readers," I could only answer in the most general of terms. Michelle over at Footnoted suggested doing a survey, and hence, here we are.


This was quite an interesting experiment; Please feel free to make suggestions for other ideas/questions/quiz ideas/concepts in the comments.
