Results of the Social Questions Experiment

Earlier this week, I exposed the idea for my project.  For five days in a row, I painstakingly wrote down every question that was either sent to me via IM, email, youtube, or blog.  I will list the questions below by Day and category, and then I will have my conclusions afterwards.  Enjoy!

Underground Social Experiment

It’s been awhile since I have last written, and this time around I thought I am going to be something I have never done before, which is a social experiment of sorts.

Every day people are asking questions, are you one of them?  Were you at school and you asked someone a question on how to do a certain problem?  Maybe you asked your teacher for help on a particular subject or clarification?

Were you at work and you had a question on what the customer wanted?  A question on your latest bill statement?  Life is full of questions.  However, over the course of time, it becomes obvious that some questions or conceptions just never go away or die.

As we all know, I am a very busy person.  I get home from work, and my time is limited to do a few tasks before I have to go to bed and then repeat the whole cycle the next day.  With that said, about 70% of my free time (maybe more or less depending on what happens that day) is related to answering questions about a diverse group of subjects.

How many questions is too many questions?  It’s time to find out in my little experiment.  Beginning today through the end of day Friday, I will be documenting and collecting every single question that is directed to me.

It can be a simple question on Youtube on my video, an e-mail, a comment here on the blog, or even in an instant messenger.  I am going to harvest every single question and collect it day by day groupings.

On Saturday, I will post the massive list of questions here on the blog for all of you to see. I don’t expect much of it to make sense, because I am just collecting questions, but I will put the questions in a topic header to separate questions from one to the other.

With that said, I am going to put up a new poll and lets see how many questions I am going to get between today and end of day Friday.  Will it be ten questions, 50, 100, 500?  We will soon find out!
