Expert invitation from the Internet Project of Pew Research

Our apologies for cross-postsŠ Members of this list are invited to

By default, all of your responses are confidential. However, we provide
respondents the opportunity to take credit for their remarks by simply
typing their name at the beginning of each response. Taking credit lends
credibility to the results and contributes to a more vibrant public
conversation. Again, to have your remarks attributed to you, please type
your name at the beginning of each open-ended response you provide. If

If you know other thought leaders who would contribute meaningful insights
on the questions posed in this survey, if you send us their contact
details we will invite them to participate.

The Pew Internet Project and Elon University will issue a series of
reports based on this survey in 2014. Your answers, attributed or
anonymous, will also be added to Imagining the Internet  If you have any
questions, please contact us.

Thank you!
