Dear readers, please tell us what you think about the blog (there’s prizes)

How time passes when you’re having fun, or at least shooting your mouth off. It has come to our attention that we haven’t asked your opinion on anything very much for over five years now (see here for summary of last survey in 2012). So some technologically gifted people in Oxfam have put together the reader survey. I would really appreciate you clicking on it – we’re due an upgrade, so it’s an ideal time to make any necessary tweaks to improve the blog. Go on, two minutes of your time once every five years isn’t that much to ask. And to make it fun, we’ll give 10 free paperback copies of How Change Happens, with the winners chosen at random.

Take the reader survey. It runs til 18th December, so I can spend Christmas brooding over the responses. Not really.

And please ignore Calvin – he is a bad person

  1. Nice observation in the excellent ‘Everybody Lies’ by Seth Stevens Davidowitz about the limits to surveys: ‘another reason for lying is simply to mess with surveys. This is a huge problem for any research regarding teenagers… …follow up research has found that a meaningful percent of teenagers tell surveys they are more than seven feet tall, weigh more than 300lbs or have three children. One survey found that 99% of students who reported having an artificial limb to researchers were lying.’

    Disappointed to see no questions on artificial limbs.
