Good point, Reid. I'm sorry we haven't yet had a chance to 
go over it. Let's talk about it at the meeting on Monday. 
I'm not sure what the IGDA survey is attempting to cover -- 
I think it's trying to see what the diversity of the game 
dev workforce is. But I'm not sure. 

Please, everyone, take a look at Reid's survey so we can 
talk about it on Monday and/or give your feedback about it 
on this list. I think it's a great starting point for us and 
we should figure out how to advertise it and possibly expand 
it.

I'll be online on Monday a half hour before the meeting (so 
I'll be online starting at 11:30 EST) if anyone wants to 
test their connections or chat one-on-one.

BTW, I'm back from Taiwan now so I'm back online more 
frequently!!

Michelle
