Please take the newest Pew Internet Project Survey!

The Pew Internet Project and Elon University are conducting an ongoing survey
of stakeholders about the future of the internet, and we would like to include
your views in our research.

This web-based survey about international concerns and the internet follows
two previous surveys of thousands of internet stakeholders that measured the
expected impact of the internet over the next decade (to see the results,
please go to

We hope you'll take 10 to 15 minutes to fill out our survey (to participate,
you must use Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari as your browser). You will
find the survey at:

The survey asks you to assess several potential scenarios tied to the future
of the internet and to contribute your own thoughts about what you believe
should or will happen by the year 2020. This is a confidential survey,
however, we encourage you to take credit for your thoughts. After each
question, you are invited to explain or expand on your views. Each elaboration
you provide will remain anonymous unless you put your name at the start of it.

When you begin the survey, please use this personal identification number
(PIN): 1001

The Pew Internet Project will issue a report based on this survey in the
spring; we expect the results to be useful to policy makers, scholars and
those in the information technology industry. Material from this survey will
be added to the Elon University/Pew Internet website, Imagining the Internet
( We will not use your name or email address for any
purpose other than this research project, and we will not share your
information with outside solicitors.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at
