Academic Survey on Virtual Worlds - Request for Assistance

     A friend of mine who is a professor at the Georgia Institute of Techology asked me to post her request for participants in a survey on virtual worlds.

     It sounds interesting and helps the study of where many of us work and play.  Please help out if you can!

     The deadline is September 15, 2012.  Details follow:

Virtual World Survey

     You are invited to participate in a research study on the demographics, attitudes, and preferences of players in graphical, non-game virtual worlds. If you have spent a significant amount of time in Virtual Worlds such as Second Life,, Blue Mars, Twinity, Kaneva and others, then we are looking to learn more about your experiences.

     The Georgia Institute of Technology is seeking volunteers with at least 30 hours combined experience with these (or similar) Virtual Worlds to participate in exciting new research. Volunteers will not be compensated for this study and must be 18 years of age or older. The final results will be submitted for peer-review publication to become part of the growing body of research into virtual worlds. Participation will require one 10-15 minute online survey with optional free response questions, as well as the opportunity to participate in a follow-up interview inside your favorite virtual world or via email. Any identifying information will be kept confidential.
