Update Last month we relaunched Reg Reader Studies, our online surveys of the opinions and perceptions of our tech-savvy readers. Early days yet, but the response has been encouraging with more than 2,000 of you signing up to join the panel and more than 1,000 so far taking part in our first survey, on server-based computing and thin clients. Thanks to everyone.

Our goal is to recruit at least as many members as we did with our former survey partner, around 8,000 people. The more of you who join, the better the demographic spread and the more accurate our results will be. So come and join our panel and help us with our first survey.

We are interested in your perceptions and opinions, even if you are not a user of server-based computing. Our new survey technology partner, Quocirca will take the survey results and turn it into a report. This will be freely available to everyone as a download PDF.

Reg Reader Studies will run on two tracks. One is State of the Nation stuff, a set of bi-annual barometer studies, which will monitor trends and patterns in IT and the businesses users. The second track is more ad-hoc - surveys of hot, mostly enterprise-led, technologies.

Interested? Then fill in the form below to get started.

Sign up should only take a couple of minutes. The information we ask for includes your name and email address. We will be the only ones to use that information, and only to let you know when new studies are ready. Quocirca will use the other information, about company size, roles etc, to build generic profiles of the people completing the study - so we can say that X% of people work in SMEs, or are developers etc. We won't pass any personal details onto anyone else.

Here is our privacy policy. If you'd like to take part in our current study but don't wish to become a panel member, simply leave your personal details blank below.

Oh, we'll run a monthly draw from Reg Reader Studies members - the winner will get a Reg Shop goody bag. ®
