If you blog

And would like to participate in a survey about the experience (it was fairly painless) there is one online. I recieved this email from a University and am glad to help them in their endeavor:

We would like to request your help as an active oracle Weblogger. Would you be so kind to announce our survey in your weblog. It is a very short survey (3-5 minutes) about the influence of weblogs on knowledge work. We think that it will help webloggers to understand, what they really do.

If you have any chance to announce our survey on your weblog or to forward the survey to oracle-bloggers, we would be very grateful. Please access the survey here: http://www.adenquire.net/pd5g0022/

 Be sure, the scope of the questionnaire is academic and non-profit. The data you submit are kept strictly confidential and anonymous. Thanks for taking your time and please feel free to forward this survey to persons that might be interested. Best regards, and thanks for support and participation,

Stephan and Gordon

 P.S.: The summarized results of this survey will be published on our website http://www.ku-eichstaett.de/Fakultaeten/WWF/Lehrstuehle/OP

Tom, have you considered putting this up:

This has to be interesting considering your international following

Yah, that was the only thing that raised my eyebrow :)

google maps

I sort of get that right now with the statcounter, but it doesn't keep too much history for me. (just the last 1000).

I'll look at that in more detail, thanks

Jesus Christ on a f..ing bike:


looks like being the most boring web page
I ever visited
(including academical and non-academical,
this one claims to be academical)

for those not understanding German:
neither http://babelfish.altavista.com/
succeeded in translating it
from German to English
(which shows in my opinion how great these programs are)

Your first sentence made me laugh out loud, but I think it may be a little strong for some of the readers ;)

I thought the survey thing was a 'social virus' when I got it, so it went straight to my trash folder.

You might have been 'had', in short.

you may have been had

I checked it out first, http://www.ku-eichstaett.de/ is a real "place" and the email addresses were from there and they did not bounce when I emailed them.

Real people at a real place, no one said academics would be full of "exciting" pages ;)
