Come to Dinner -- Spreading the Word

So Who Exactly IS Coming to Dinner? (Take the Survey) : Bump on the Blog

Found this link via Christy Tucker who says it's a, "Discussion about the lack of diversity in the education technology blogosphere, including a survey to try to measure a snapshot of the population. Go take the survey and help him get a good set of data."

So I'm spreading the word and saying: go take the survey and add your own little self into the mix.

I think where the results will get tricky is in how one defines "edublogosphere". All of us e-Learning bloggers certainly promote educational technology. And then there are consultant-types who focus on performance improvement within organizations, of which learning and training is a key component -- and thus technology. It all blends together. Where does one blogosphere end and the next begin?

When I first started blogging, I too wondered out loud where all the women were. Since then, I've made a conscious effort to connect with women bloggers -- although women still make up less than half of my blog roll. Check out Janet Clarey's posts on the same subject: Women's Voices in the Edublogosphere.
