Dear usability experts and F/OSS developers,

If you are working in an open source project, we are inviting you to
participate in a doctorate study that investigates how developers and
HCI experts work in a distributed manner. You will be asked to answer
a set of questions regarding F/OSS projects you take part in. Your
participation in this survey will provide information that could
be used to improve how HCI experts and developers interact in a
F/OSS project.

Online survey takes only 15 minutes to complete and will allow us to
have an understanding of interaction patterns among project participants.

If you are usability expert, click on:

in order to complete this short survey. Please circulate this email to your
friends and contacts so that we can have the widest possible feedback.

Note: demographic inputs of this study will be kept strictly confidential,
i.e your name and any other private data will not appear anywhere publicly.

Many thanks for your participation!

Best

What do you do if you're both?

not the other :-)
