Here's your chance to win an Amazon gift card by taking a few minutes to help us out.

It's that time of the year again where the company that handles most of the advertisements on Phoronix, IDG TechNetwork, is looking to collect some more general demographic information on Phoronix readers. The information is used to serve more relevant advertisements to you and in filling more relevant ads to Phoronix hopefully higher-paying ads. Greater ad revenue means more articles on Phoronix, more Linux hardware testing, perhaps more staff and the luxury then of exhausting myself less than 100 hour work weeks, etc.

If you are interested in filling out the few-minute survey that just asks general questions about your interests and other general data, head on over to participate in this research survey. For those supplying their email address, you will be entered to randomly win a $150 Amazon gift card supplied courtesy of IDG TechNetwork for Phoronix respondents. Respondents will also be put into a drawing for two $500 Amazon gift cards that is from a larger pool of all IDG TechNetwork sites. (Update: it turns out the giveaway is limited to US residents only. Unfortunately it's handled via IDG TechNetwork and outside of our control, but your survey responses even for international visitors is highly appreciated.)

So please fill out the survey and good luck. Thanks!
