Survey 2010 results

Two months ago, we pushed out a 2010 survey to find out stuff that may help us plan our events to better serve you.

San Francisco down to South San Francisco 57.9% (11) 42.1% (8) 1.42 19
Middle of Peninsula (Redwood City to Menlo Park) 50.0% (12) 50.0% (12) 1.50 24
South Bay (Palo Alto to San Jose) 42.3% (11) 57.7% (15) 1.58 26
East Bay 77.8% (7) 22.2% (2) 1.22 9
Berkeley/Oakland area 100.0% (8) 0.0% (0) 1.00 8

Every time we get together, to help figure an event location, there's one reason Sofitel and Redwood City tend to win, because we have most people either in the middle or the South Bay.

We'll try and shoot for holding future events using the event list as a guide for priority, keeping to 2-3 hours, and Saturdays or Sundays.

By the way, we thought the worst time for an event was Monday, but apparently the results show Tuesday is the worst.
