Randy, survey results beyond KDNuggets newsletter readers
I'd like to suggest to KDNuggets that when you conduct surveys of your readership it would be very beneficial to have such survey results beyond your readership and a comparison of readership results vs. non-readership. I'm concerned that your results are or could very well be biased and it would give more confidence in the results if the surveys were conducted beyond but I understand that it would cost more to do such so on key areas of interest, would KDNuggets be open to such survey sampling and add to the confidence of the results?

Gregory Piatetsky, Editor I would love to conduct surveys outside of KDnuggets readers, but I would need partners who would help do it and pay for it.
