We're wrapping up the survey in most languages today. According to
statistics which I have not validated, we have received more than
115,000 questionnaires. I'm very pleased by this high response rate,
which bodes well for future surveys.

We expect first results to be published within the next eight weeks.
We've learned a lot through this process, and I am very grateful for
all the help and feedback, and of course for everyone who took the
time to go through the survey and forgave its imperfections. We'll try
to take all feedback into account as we begin interpreting the

The following languages will continue running for a week or two
because they had a late launch or a low response rate:

Chinese (Simplified /Traditional)
Bahasa Indonesia

Thanks again for all help,
