The Conversations Network — Annual Survey Results

A few weeks ago we published the results of the annual survey of SpokenWord.org members. Beginning with this post, I’ll be blogging the results of the larger survey of all registered members of The Conversations Network. While SpokenWord.org is our 14-month old site for finding and sharing all spoken-word audio and video, The Conversations Network survey covers our proprietary channels: IT Conversations, Social Innovation Conversations and CHI Conversations. As of this date, the new survey has been completed by 302 members versus 461 last year. (The new survey is still open.) Note that last year’s data are shown in [square brackets].
