I'm (just barely) starting to blog about data for families and households. One of the first pieces I want to do is about potty training, and there's some gaps in the existing literature that I'm hoping to address by collecting some data from parents on when and how they did potty training. If you've potty trained a child *within the past year*, and feel like sharing how it went, I would be most appreciative if you do this 5 minute survey. I'll share the results back here and at littldata.com.
I'm writing a book about the public radio pledge drive. I've conducted two focus groups and done two years worth of secondary research. I've also had interviews with leaders in and founders of public radio. And I have nearly 1,000 followers on various social media accounts who are in public radio.

Do you like answering party questions and seeing how other people answered? Do you like remaining anonymous and hate logging in? Yes? Then this is for you. It is a simple application that asks questions and displays the responses to users who have answered them.

Before you start programming, you might only know you're supposed to learn CODING!, but you don't even know what that means. You don't know there's HTML and Ruby and C++ and D3 and a million other things, just that there's a big black box called CODING! and you're supposed to break into it somehow. How Do You Code? asks people from all walks of life to explain how they code and share the tools they use, so maybe everyone else can get a leg up.
I hope you'll check out www.thebarsceneseries.com, a new webseries about four twenty-somethings debating bar-appropriate "survey questions". Each webisode's survey question reveals a little more about each character and his/her own relationship woes. From preferred underwear on a partner, to theories of The One, this series is a light-hearted take on messy relationship and the healing salve of friends and beer.
