  1. We want to hear from designers, developers, IAs, content strategists, writers, editors—everyone who makes websites, web applications, etc.

  2. In question #20 (“What kind of work did you do before getting involved in the web?”), the choice of answers makes it seem like if one didn’t come from an IT/Web background, then one’s background is necessarily “non-technical” (specially since there is no “other” option). The work that I did was that of a scientific researcher at a biotech company, which is HIGHLY technical. I worked with all kinds of complex equipment and specialized software (even did some coding) on a daily basis. So none of the answers apply to me (I didn’t come from a IT background, design/advertising/art, OR non-technical). Perhaps “non-web/IT” would be a better option than “non-technical.”

  4. Just filled it in.

    I’d be fascinated to see all members of a digital agency fill in the skills bit of that survey.  My suspicion is that web design and development has a big crossover, whereas most Social Media Experts and SEO Experts seem to have very few web-based skills.

  5. Thanks for collecting and sharing the data from this survey. I was recently asked to prepare a title and salary comparison report for US Web related positions. The data for that subset from the 2009 Survey was comprehensive and easy to work with. Thanks.
