I would like to request your participation in a survey on
Some of the projects already participating in the survey include Qt,
---- The survey will be used as part of my thesis on Open Source Organizational Culture at BI Norwegian Business School (www.bi.no/en, or www.bi.edu), but in true Open Source spirit the raw - but anonymized - results will be open for all. So, your Open Source project will be able to massage and dissect the results any way you wish, and see how you compare with other projects out there. Up until now, most research in Open Source culture has been based on mining mailing lists to find out how people act, who they interact with, and how projects organize themselves. In this research we would rather ask the participants directly about how a project is managed and what should change for the project to be spectacularly successful. When? ----- The survey is open now through May 1st. Where? ------ The bit.ly address brings you to the following survey https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1587798/osocas-2014 Remember that you can save your progress at any time and come back to the survey at a later point when you have time to finish it. Who are you? ------------ My name is Marius Storm-Olsen, and I am currently working on a thesis on Open Source Organizational Culture. I've been an active part of Open Source for years, most notably on the Qt and Git projects. Although I have my own experiences to draw on, they do not qualify for the Open Source community at large. How to help? ------------ If you want to help, feel free to send me an email with the name and website of the project, and I will go through the appropriate channels to request permission to send the survey out on their mailing list(s). If you are a prominent member of said project, feel free to forward the survey invitation directly, but please let me know so I can update that survey request overview below. You'll find a wiki containing the current survey request status here: https://github.com/mstormo/OSOCAS/wiki I do hope you can participate, and thank you for your consideration!
