    I can’t believe i read the whole thing. The one piece of information I really wanted to know was what blogging platform do you use and they didn’t have it.

  2. Jerry says:

    I’m fairly certain it’s WordPress. It’s pretty mainstream, a lot of companies use it as well (I’ve created several WordPress-based blogs for companies and corporations). Then again it may just be my perception, I don’t have actual numbers to back that up (and neither Google nor Wikipedia seem to want to give me any).

    This will probably only be topped by server-hosted blogging platforms, such as Blogger, WordPress.com, Blogspot, LiveJournal and the likes. Hey, remember Modblog?

    Oh and might I say, hooray for Firefox’s restore feature. My previous comment just survived a blown fuse.

  4. Ryan B says:

    I wonder how the 33,000 got picked.

  5. Jerry says:

    @Ryan: basically anyone who wanted to could take part, the survey was announced online.

  6. Business says:

    Very organize report, I actually went through all 82 pages. Though it was some what entertaining, I didn’t learn much about web development.
