Okay, so if you've read the "Research on the Bitcoin Community" thread ( https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=85967.0 ), you'll know that I've been working on a little survey project to try to learn a little more about all of us Bitcoin users.

It will only take a few minutes of your time (14 questions), so if you could help out I would really appreciate it!

Feedback is also appreciated. Thank you!

How are you checking if people aren't giving repeated responses if you aren't saving the email-addresses? Are you saving the hash value of the email-addresses? I would love to help you out, but Gmail is explicitly stating the survey is asking for my email-address:

Bitcoinsurvey.herokuapp.com is asking for some information from your Google Account xxxxxxxxxxx@gmail.com
•  Email address: Xxxxxx Xxxxxxxxx (xxxxxxxxxxx@gmail.com)

Yes, I'm only saving a hashed value of the e-mail addresses. (A repeatedly hashed value to be more precise. You can never be too paranoid. Cheesy)

Shoot, sorry. Something has apparently gone wrong. I'm currently fixing it now.

Okay, the issue should be resolved now. I'm so sorry about that.

Just so you know, it wasn't catastrophic data failure or anything like that. I just accidentally overlooked a syntax error while trying to fix a different small issue (Someone was getting redirected to the first question for a bizarre reason).

So am I! We've got about 50 responses so far, so that's the best $6 I've ever spent! Grin

Nice survey. Since this one was largely demographics and very general Bitcoin questions, what sort of topics did you have in mind for future surveys?

Well, I have some ideas. One of the things I'd like to explore more (and others expressed interest in this) are the challenges that might be turning people away from Bitcoin, like negative perception or difficulty to use, and see if there are things we can do to help change it.

Part of the reason I'm doing the demographics right now is to figure out more about why certain types of people might be more likely to use Bitcoin than others, at least at this stage. We'll have to look at the results, but if I had to speculate, I would imagine that we have a relatively high proportion of younger users, as they would be more willing to adopt something new, who are also more technically oriented (programmers, etc.), because Bitcoin would be easier to understand. This might suggest that we should figure out ways to explain and market Bitcoin better to non-technical younger people if we want Bitcoin adoption to increase.

There is more to Bitcoin than bitcoins.

First of all, I applaud the initiative. Second, the title of the post (mybitcoin...) raised an eyebrow for a moment  Grin
Finally, I hope you will use the answers to design a more specific and detailed questionary in future.

They're there, in their room.

Thank you! This is the first time I've ever done something like this, so I hope that this experience will help me make the next one a lot better.

On a side note, we have now hit 75 responses! (I'm sure you're all on the edge of your seats)

How is this more secure?

Well, I'm not an security expert or anything, but as far as I know, there's no computationally easy way to reverse a hash function (let alone several times), so if anybody were to (somehow) get into my database, they wouldn't suddenly have a handy list of plain e-mail addresses they could use to spam with.

I just did it. So the results will be made public?

I made a couple of simple surveys. The second one didn't get many respondents (~50) but the first got over 200 which was OK.

" I'm looking forward to publishing the results soon. "

Missed that at first.
