Qs: Help Collecting Data: Study about Web Authors

Editor for this issue: Kevin Burrows <kevinlinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Subject: Help Collecting Data: Study about Web Authors


My name is Einat and I'm a researcher with IBM. I'd like to ask for your
help with a study I'm conducting.

I want to study the way people choose to express themselves in their blogs,
personal homepage, work page, wiki, shared tagging, etc.

In order to do this I need people to send me back a list of the URLs that
they have authored on the Web.

If you are willing to help me collect this information please send me a
list that looks like this:

personal homepage: [url]
blog: [url]
professional homepage: [url]
family album: [url]
anything else: [url]

When the study is over I will send a report to those who will help me
collect this data.
