The results of the Edelman/Technorati ‘blog survey’ are in.
The signs are not exactly encouraging:
- the entry announcing the results has no discussion of survey’s limitations
- the survey is already called “a study of influential bloggers’ attitudes” (emphasis added) — although there’s no explanation on how the not-so-influential bloggers were preventend from taking the survey
- responses to the open-ended questions are published along with the responders’ IP addresses; I’m not sure that this is what the responders understood when they were assured that “the study is confidential and anonymous.”
- there’s no analysis of responses to the three open-ended questions included in the survey
Anyway, I’ll wait for the “oficial” report (I hope there is one).
Oct. 7 update – Phil Gomes: Edelman is preparing “a more formal analysis” of the data,
