MIT survey

Take the MIT Weblog Survey

So what did you do today? I helped some people over at MIT with a little research project they've got going. . .

I'm curious to see what they are going to do with the results of this blogging survey. It seems to be focusing quite heavily on blogs as a tool for social networking. For myself, all the people in my blog links are people I know personally, except for one. I wonder if that's the exception or the rule? Maybe it depends on whether the blog is primarily for business or personal use.

Either way, if the boys at MIT are focusing their unusually large brains on blogs and calling it science, is the blog officially sitting at the grown-up's table now?

The first time I saw this, I swear it only showed the graphic. Being curious, I couldn't help myself...

You must be REALLY quick on the draw. I posted just the graphic for about three seconds, took a look at it and thought it needed a little explanation.

I got sucked into the survey the same way . . . there are several versions of the graphic (as you probably know by now if you took the survey) and a friend of mine had posted the one that says "I made some science" and I had to click.

I don't really have anything intelligent to say.
