A New Survey on Information Management

I'd like to interrupt the usual programming here to ask you a favor.

The startup I'm working on will ship its first product in 2012.  As part of our development, we'd like to get some data on how people are affected by information overload.  We hope our product will help with that problem, but we need to understand better how people feel about the problem and what they're doing about it today.  So we're doing a survey.

I think that you, the folks who read Mobile Opportunity, are a very good cross-section of technology users, so I'd like to ask you to take the survey.  I know you have much better things to do with your time than fill out a survey, but we could really use your help.  It'll take about ten minutes, and it's almost all multiple choice.  I'll share the results here, so you can learn more about your fellow readers and how you compare to them.

To go to the survey, click hereNote: The survey is now closed.  You can read about the results here.

Once our company gets closer to launching, I will start up a separate weblog to talk about the product.  I'll also keep on writing Mobile Opportunity, with its current focus.

Thanks in advance for your help.  I really appreciate it.  And I'll have a new post for you next week.  It's a pretty long one that I've been working on for a while.

Hmmm. I'm sorry for the trouble with the survey.

I don't have a TouchPad, so I can't test this on my own, but I worry that SurveyMonkey may not be formatting the survey well for your screen. At the bottom of the first page of the survey, you should see a button that says "next." You tap that button to go to the next question. Depending on the size of your screen, you might have to scroll down to see the button.

If that doesn't help, drop me a note on email (click "Contact" at the top of this page).
