Hi, I am doing my dissertation on the use of RSS technologies and would appreciate it greatly if any of you users of RSS technologies would like to take the time to complete my questionairre.

There are 22 questions(mostly tick box questions) and it will only take 3-5 minutes of your time.

Thank you for your time and all participants would be greatly helping me as my dissertation is due in next week.

edit: no personal information is collected.

To be honest I clicked the link, saw "Proffesioanl", and didn't bother to fill it in.

Seriously, you're a fourth year student. If you want people to take time to complete your questionnaire you should proof-read it first.

Anyway, I'll give it a go and fill it in as best I can!

Indeed. I gave up at question 5 where there is no "I dont use RSS", which probably applies to 90% of the population?!

Yea, the questionnaire was sloppy.

It kept asking about the RSS reader you use - I use the live bookmarks in firefox (as I'll bet a lot of other people do) but the questionnaire kept assuming people used a standalone reader or web-based reader.

And as for asking what you don't like about RSS readers and gave "bandwidth hog" as an option... it just didn't make sense.

Where do you find feeds to subscribe to? The questionnaire assumed you use a search engine. Most people probably get the feed URL from the website itself.

The questionnaire also used buzzwords. Seriously, "information overload"?

And it was a bit too long.

So it's due in next week and you're doing a questionnaire now?! Shouldn't you have done this about 8 months ago?!

PS There should be an "I don't use RSS Feeds" option- as I don't.
