in it for the hamiltons
Nielsen called me yesterday and said that they would pay me $10 if I did this survey about my web usage. As I said in my preceding post, I'm going out of town tomorrow. Can someone take care of this for me either today or while I am gone? E-mail me if you do. I know this should give me bad survey karma especially since there is a survey in which I'm heavily invested in the field right now, but the karma-accountants draw a distinction between academic and for-profit survey research.
