Bitcoin mining is now a specialized and very risky industry, just like gold mining. Amateur miners are unlikely to make much money, and may even lose money. Bitcoin is much more than just mining, though!

I started mining about 2 months ago. I have since bought coins with money I sold the original coins for. That doesn't seem to be implied in your poll. You should add an option for I mined my first coins in the last 3 months.

I first started reading about bitcoin in mid november and bought my first bitcoin in mid december.

It will be interesting to see the results of the poll...I have a feeling there will be more old users than new. We need more of a campaign attitude to get more users.  I think smartphones and the teen demographic could be huge.  

This video was really interesting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PhPZv8nOq5o&context=C3edcd0bADOEgsToPDskJtn3widZG0gbI-gVckxzd3

David Birch thinks bitcoin is a transaction processing technology and doesn't understand it's also a money.

 i think his point that people really dont want an anonymous currency is valid.
