Some researchers at Carnegie Mellon University contacted us to see if we could help spread the word about a study they are doing on DIY Communities and Projects. Its exciting to see this topic get attention from such an esteemed university.

Below is the link to the survey. Its 7 pages long and it took me under 10 minutes to complete it.

It would be awesome if this study gets lots of participation!

I took the survey, quick and easy. I'd be interested to know what they're doing with the data, what conclusions they draw, etc. The DIY, craft-revival, reuse/refashion trend is terrific, people creating and expressing themselves instead of consume, consume, consume.
