ADMIN: A Quick Reader Survey

I'm getting myself organized for the new year :) If you could post a brief comment answering the following questions, that would be great:

1) Would you be interested in seeing posts about items not in the public domain or under Creative Commons license, but freely available on-line just the same?

2) Would you like to see posts about video? About book readers, MP3 player, gadgets or anything of that sort?

3) Would you prefer to see more editorializing/commentating from me about each post, or do you enjoy the more bare-bones 'just the links' style I have used so far?

4) Do you like the somewhat random post-as-I-find-stuff approach, or would you prefer theme days, e.g. an audio book every Monday, a song every Tuesday etc.

Thanks! I want to try and get the word out there about this blog more, so I want it to be the best it can be. I would so appreciate your brief feedback, either via comment or via email.

1) No.

2) Video: Yes. Book readers: No (MobileRead already does that). MP3 player: No. Gadgets or anything of that sort: No.

3) Would you prefer to see more editorializing/commentating from me about each post, or do you enjoy the more bare-bones 'just the links' style I have used so far?
Both. 8-)

4) Random is fine.

1) Yes, but with a distinct label

2) Good, free software yes, gadgets no

3) For the music, a little more categorization would sometimes be nice, for the books perhaps the date of creation could help

4) Since you mark up all your posts so i can look for music later, the post-as-you-find stuff is apt. Everything else would probably lead to deteriorating quality in the long term

No. If it's not public domain or CC (or some other 'pass it on' kind of license), why get the RIAA all pissy with you about posting links to copy protected material?

2) Would you like to see posts about video? About book readers, MP3 player, gadgets or anything of that sort?

Media - yes. Gadgets - no (lots of other sites that specialize in this topic).

3) Would you prefer to see more editorializing/commentating from me about each post, or do you enjoy the more bare-bones 'just the links' style I have used so far?

Not required. If you happen to want to provide more information, go for it.

4) Do you like the somewhat randon post-as-I-find-stuff approach, or would you prefer theme days, e.g. an audio book every Monday, a song every Tuesday etc.

Random is best.

ps - if this is a dupe, sorry, it didn't look like it 'took' first time around.
