Anyone operating a hot spot? Might want to look at this.

> Hi All.
> I'm conducting a WiFi survey in New York in partnership with

> University.  I just launched it yesterday.  I believe that the

> and applications for these networks.
> Using SurveyMonkey, it is very easy to customize a version of this  
> survey for any group that would like to participate by running a  
> localized version of the survey.  For the first survey question, I  
> would need to add a list of your hotspots or at least the most  
> highly trafficked hotspots.  The rest of the survey would be the  
> same and your users would also be eligible for the prize drawing.   
> I am happy to add additional questions if you have specific  
> questions that you would like to ask you users.  The survey is in  
> English and it will run for the next three months.  Here is a link  
> where you can test out the survey:
> Once I've customized the survey for your location, you can either e- 
> mail a link to your members or I can create a pop up window for  
> your captive portal page or Website.  I would give you access to  
> the data so that you can learn about the use of WiFi on your  
> hotspots.  Let me know if you are interested.  Thanks.
