Survey time, Kiwis

As seen at The Hand Mirror:

Andrew Cushen, a Masters student of Political Studies at Auckland, is writing his thesis on political blogging in Aotearoa NZ and needs some help from those of us in Blogland.

He’s doing two anonymous online surveys – one for those who identify as political bloggers (takes about 20 minutes), and the other for those who read political blogs (takes no more than five minutes).

Have at it!

And while we’re on the topic of ticky-boxy-fun, this is awesome:

My name is Jaimie Veale, I am undertaking this research for my Doctoral thesis in psychology at Massey University. This research is testing a model that I developed to explain the development of gender-variance e.g. transsexualism, transvestism, and other forms of gender diversity. If you would like to know more about this model, you will be given the opportunity at the end of the questionnaire to read a more detailed explanation, and comment on whether you believe it is feasible.

Because you won’t be giving any information that will identify you, you and all the other participants in this project will be completely anonymous. In addition, the Apache server used to collect this data provides a high level of security.

If you wish to participate, you complete a multiple-choice survey of approximately 150 items. I estimate that this will take 30-55 minutes for you to complete. Completion and submission of the questionnaire implies acknowledgement you are over the age of 16 and give consent.

Really interesting questions, and amazingly inoffensive, and I cannot plug it more! Plus, not limited to NZers.
