Pew: Internet Typology Test

What type of information gadget user are you? Pew Internet & American Life Project has a quick test online that will help you understand your Internet typology. Try it. Then get those around you to try it. It might be interesting to see what you all learn about yourselves as individuals and as a group.

Of course, there is a report that goes along with this and the 65-page report can be found here. PDF page 3 (or report page ii) lists briefly all of the group types, what percentage of the population they are, and what you need to know about them. Where are you on that table? And the members of your team? And...your users?

mmm...maybe this emphasizes either why you all get along so well (when you talk about digitization or social networking tools or ...) OR why you are at odds over technology.

P.S. (7:00 p.m.) -- I should have noted that I'm a "connector." I've already heard from one reader who is an omnivore. I guess I need to own and use a few more gadgets.

Thanks for highlighting this report, Jill. Turns out, I'm a connector, too! :)
