Snapshot 2012: a final word

I found it really hard to personally keep up with all of the interviews that were conducted over the Snapshot week; turns out there were something like 158, so I don’t feel too bad about that. Happily, the awesome Tehani has done a great job at collating the links for all of the interviews, which can be found here, at ASif! If you want to get a feel for some of the interviews without reading all of them, Ben did an amazing job of picking a quote or two from each interview, assembling and linking them in what amounts to a snapshot of the Snapshot, which can be found over on his blog. 

I’m really pleased with how this turned out! Now someone needs to run the numbers for us and work out the trends, particularly for question 4 – who people are reading – and 5 – what’s changed in two years. I don’t think I’m volunteering  😀
