::Hey moderators/administrators, feel free to delete this post. My project is complete. Thanks for trying to help
I'm a student at UW conducting a research project about Occupy Wall Street. I was wondering if anyone involved in Occupy Seattle would be willing to answer a couple of questions for this project. This will only take a couple seconds of your time! If you want more information about this, feel free to email me at email@example.com
You can either post your replies to the questions below or email me with the responses if you'd like them to be private. Feel free to write as little or as much as you want, and if you don't want to answer some questions, then by all means, skip them. I do want to stress that these responses will not be published; only me, my research partner and my professor will be reading these. Thanks!
1. What are your main concerns/reasons for participating in Occupy Seattle?
2. Do you feel OccupySeattle.org has been effective in mobilizing offline action? Why or why not? What specific parts or functions of the website are effective/not effective in doing this?
3. What has been the most effective tool the Occupy Seattle movement uses (online or offline) in order to mobilize participants offline?
4. Do you feel OccupySeattle.org has been able to bring in new people who are unfamiliar with the movement, or are the people involved here people you already know? In other words, have you met a lot of new people through your involvement with this website and through Occupy Seattle, or has it strengthened your bonds with pre-existing friends?
5. What do you think about the traditional media and their coverage of the movement? What types of sources do you use to get your news? Do these news reports affect your participation offline and/or online in any way?
6. Feel free to tell me a little bit about yourself, if you wish. Anything you want me to know?
Thanks again for your help!
