Out of nowhere, we woke up Sunday morning to discover that, instead of the slow trickle of participants we'd become accustomed to... the site was booming!
All thanks to "mike_esspe" who posted the survey to Hacker News. This small action has generated over 50,000 new completed surveys so far — over 3,000 an hour yesterday, which is almost one new visitor per second. And it's still going strong.
So a big thank you to everyone who participated, and a big welcome to everyone arriving. As soon as this new wave of participation slows down, we'll take another look at the data and see what new trends we can tease out of it, so bookmark this page!
