[Not directly hacking related]


I'm inviting you to participate on a survey on individuals involved in  
different kind of Peer Production communities: hackerspaces,  
makerspaces, fablabs, 100k garages, and alike. The survey contains 21  
questions, and typically it takes around 5 minutes to complete.

Survey can be found from here:
- in English http://surveys.peerproduction.net/ls/index.php?sid=34316&lang=en
- in French http://surveys.peerproduction.net/ls/index.php?sid=34316&lang=fr

Survey will be open 15-30th June 2012, which leaves you 2 weeks time  
to answer it.


The survey was conducted 2010 and 2011. Results from 2011 (compared to  
2010) can be found from here:

Last year 250 hackers participated in the survey. Hopefully this time  
more hackers will participate. The survey is intended to give insights  
about DIY communities to the people involved, and we hope that this  
will help in motivating you to take the time to participate!

The survey is a part of a newly founded initiative for open source  
research on peer production (supported by the Peer to Peer Foundation,  
more info at http://surveys.peerproduction.net/). All of the  
(anonymised, of course!) data will be openly available on the survey  

I edited questions slightly, but no major changes were made. Biggest  
change is the tool used. This year we use LimeSurvey, which is a great  
open source survey tool. Another change is that this time we have  
survey questions in English and French.

Results will be posted to above mentioned blog this summer. The raw  
data from this survey will be made
available for everyone else too for further use. Link to data will be
provided in http://surveys.peerproduction.net/open-data/longitudinal-data/

Your help would be needed: if you can (and see fit) spread the word,  
please do.
