Answered the survey last night.  Interesting questions, although I had my
doubts about asking us about whether we spend time doing things for "the
community" when we'd rather be doing something else.  Now, there certainly
are communities where that possibility exists, and I'm curious to see what
kind of data she produces about them, but I'd have liked to seen an option
for "not applicable" with those and a few other questions where the survey
didn't feel flexible enough.

Here's hoping we get to see the results; otherwise I'll be trawling the
theses publications from Queen's U.  :-)  Thanks for passing this on, Grant.
