For this one "article", I'm actually going to reach through the screen and find out what you actually think when you click on an article or follow a feed title. There's no real reason for doing this ... it's just that sometimes we on this side of the screen forget that the beauty of interactive media is that it is, well, interactive. I promise this isn't going to some marketing person, and you're not going to discover at the end of it that you've just become the proud possessor of a moose.
So here are a few questions that I'd like to know your thoughts about:
1) What are you wanting from me as a writer or editor? Code walk-throughs? IT analysis? industry news? wry commentary? end of the world angst? deep philosophical rumbling? Just to see how deep I can step into the cow poop?
2) Is this true for all O'Reilly writers, or do you really just like watching me up to my chin in muck? ;-)
3) Do you read O'Reilly Broadcast or Radar for deep technical content, specific writers, insights into big issues, introductory tutorials or other reasons?
4) What new coverage topics have you seen us do (within the last six months, say) that you'd like us (or me personally) to explore in greater detail?
5) What do you think is getting done to death here, is inappropriate for O'Reilly to be covering, or is just not interesting to you?
6) What are we not covering that you think we should be?
7) If you could write a blog for O'Reilly Media, would you? About what?
8) What is the air speed of an unladen swallow?
I'm not comment trolling here - I honestly would just like to know what you think about what we're doing here, and how we can do things better.
