The recession and you: has the economy changed your IT spending?

    If you can spare about 10 minutes to take a survey I would love to
    hear about how the global recession is (or is not) changing your
    personal or organizational IT plans.

    This is part of a study I am conducting for my own blog
    (, and I will be making the results freely available in
    the coming weeks. I am doing this as part of my own private research
    effort, and it isn't being done on the behalf of any corporations or
    clients. This subject (i.e. how the economy impacts IT trends) is
    something that has fascinated me for years while I was employed as a
    market researcher at Microsoft, and now that I am no longer with the
    firm I am free to really explore the subject.

    I don’t have any fancy prizes, or incentives, to offer you for taking
    the survey (i.e. I don’t have any kind of research budget), but I can
    promise the reward that comes from helping your fellow man, and making
    the world a better place.

    Ok, that’s a little over the top… But your contribution (through
    answering the survey questions) will go towards helping the tech
    industry understand how to better meet your needs in a changed world.
    If nothing else, the results of this study should prove to be an
    interesting read for anyone. :)

    P.S. This survey is designed so that people who say they have an IT
    related job will be shown enterprise-type questions. Everyone else
    will see questions about technology spending in the home. You are free
    to take the survey twice if you are particularly ambitious, answering
    both the enterprise and consumer IT sections.

    survey is broken as "other" is not an acceptable answer for jobs,
    industry etc.
