The Survey, 2008

The A List Apart staff just announced it’s second annual Survey For People Who Make Websites, and I strongly urge you to head over and take it. Last year’s Survey was a goldmine of information on our industry- who we are, where we live, our jobs and roles and backgrounds, and I for one am really interested in seeing how these metrics change over time. This isn’t just for web designers, mind you, but anyone working on web projects. From the ALA site:

Calling all designers, developers, information architects, project managers, writers, editors, marketers, and everyone else who makes websites. It is time once again to pool our information so as to begin sketching a true picture of the way our profession is practiced worldwide.
[From The Survey, 2008]

The survey (depending on your path through it) has up to 37 questions, but is very quick to rip through if you’re strapped for time. But please do- every response just helps make the results (which are always posted in both report and raw data formats) even more valid for the rest of us.
