Passing the word concerning the recent census launched by the Ada Initiative. I took it and it really takes no longer than 5 minutes to complete (actually, even less for me). It’s for women and men, and if you still haven’t done it I strongly recommend you do!
Ada Initiative Census is a periodic survey of women in the open
technology and culture community, designed to “take the temperature” of
women’s participation in open communities. Our goals are to learn what
projects women are working on, and how women are treated in each
We will use the results of this survey to help design
other Ada Initiative projects. The census will be repeated from time to
time to help us understand changes in the community over time.
As I mentioned, the census is quick and takes 5 minutes to complete. End date is Tuesday, March 29th, 2011 (TODAY!).
