Most readers of this newsletter know that I have been experimenting with the newsletter format recently. I have struggled to work around impediments created by spam filters. I cannot measure the size of the problem with precision, but it appears that roughly 30% of the Plus Edition newsletters sent via e-mail never reach the intended addressees. I continue to send the Plus Edition to each subscriber via e-mail every week, but I have also been experimenting with alternative delivery methods for those who cannot receive e-mail versions.
Along the way, I have introduced several new terms to readers of this newsletter. Recent articles have been awash with references to Web logs, blogs, RSS, newsreaders, RDF and ATOM. Reaction from readers has been mixed: some people have been delighted with the changes while others have not. However, the total feedback received has been from a tiny percentage of the total newsletter readers.
Today I am asking for YOUR opinion. I have set up an online poll. I would like your opinion. It will only require a few seconds of your time. In fact, once you register your opinion, you will be able to see the opinions of everyone who "voted" before you. You can also return every day to see how the polling is going. I will leave the polling open until ten days from today. At that time, the requests that receive the most "votes" will win; I will make sure that the most popular options will be available for many, many months.
The first three questions are for those who paid for Plus Edition subscriptions. The last two are for those who read the free Standard Edition. I hope the questions are self-explanatory.
Please let me know your opinion. I would ask you to take a few seconds to select your preference from the following list.
NOTE: If the online poll does not appear below in your Web browser, RSS newsreader or e-mail program, you can participate in the poll by visiting http://www.eogn.com/home/poll.htm.
