02:30 pm - on demographic research...
Help me out here with a question that came up over lunch with coworkers. Please take a couple minutes to answer the following questions (well one question and some demographic data). Thanx.

1) Name the five most important software companies. Don't think about this too hard. Just name them in the order they come to you.
2) What do you do for a living?
3) Are you male or female?
4) How old are you?
5) Do you consider yourself a geek?
