Click the link above and take this survey for a Charlotte cultural arts nonprofit that wants to better understand what residents like to do when you visit uptown and the surrounding edge city areas. The survey takes about 15-20 minutes to complete, and you can be entered to win a $250 Visa Gift Card if you complete it.
This will not be used for marketing purposes -- this is a nonprofit that needs better data to make decisions about its programming. Specifically, this is a human design-centered survey that asks primarily questions about what you like to do and how you make decisions.
It looks like someone has created a Van Atta Connector page on wikipedia, but it's in danger of deletion within a few days if it can't be improved:
I was sure that I had read about this before, but on searching the web for good sources, I came up surprisingly dry. Can somebody who follows this stuff edit that page to link out to a source or two, then remove the prime-for-deletion tag?
Thanks in advance.
