Urgent assistance sought to build reader profile

Spare three minutes for a quick survey, guv?

Survey It's a funny old thing, the Internet. You can set up a successful site, attract millions of dedicated readers, but still not know anything about them.

Indeed, it has been estimated that were all of El Reg's readers to stand shoulder-to-shoulder, they would cover an area equivalent to three Isles of Wight, or seventeen thousand football pitches, or two million four hundred thousand Windows 98 user guides.

It's a lovely thought, but - and here's the rub - how do you develop your product to deliver what this great discerning mass of humanity actually wants? Yup, you've guessed it: this is where you come in.

We'd like you to take just three minutes of your valuable time to complete our online survey. It's anonymous and asks all sorts of exciting and apposite questions, such as: "What is your main source for IT news and information?"

Answers not on a postcard, but right here, please. We can't offer you anything for your time other than the certain knowledge that you have contributed to the evolution of The Register. Oh yes, and our eternal gratitude. Thank you. ®
