Re: [802SEC] Proposed 802 survey form


WOW, that is much more support for the survey than I expected.  Thanks.

While doing the survey on the web offers solutions to a bunch of
problems, there are some issues.

	1)  I did receiver some comments on the survey that were not broadcast
to the 802 SEC alias.  These comments led to some minor changes in some
of the questions and the addition of another question.  Unfortunately I
did not have change tracking turned on when I made the changes.  The
updated survey is attached.

	2)  I would like to record each responder's answers as a row (or
column) in an Excel spread sheet.  That way correlations between
responders can be investigated if we want/need to.  Just keeping
counters of how may responders give a particular answer looses that information.

	3)  Whether to place a link to the survey in a more obvious place,
perhaps the "IEEE 802 Plenary/interim meeting information" page (

	4)  Will we get a comparable response rate using the web versus passing
out paper surveys in a meeting?  I certainly don't know the answer to
this, but it concerns me.

	5)  What do other members of the SEC think of doing this on the web?

802 SEC comments and suggestions are requested.
