Look Who's Talking!
I'm searching within Blogger for "American Community Survey". So far I've looked at about 100 out of 2238 results. Google produces 426,000 results using the same search words. Some are personal blogs or websites without comments, some are active forums not particularily associated with the ACS. My temporary conclusion after reading so many entries and posts is this: No matter who you are or what your focus may be— when The ACS Census Packet arrives, the internet becomes your confidant, your soapbox, your therapist, your teacher, and a reliable source of information.
As I keep searching, I'll add more. This could be in the Links section but I wanted to add some commentary.
- 01.06.06 This is a forum for graphic designers. This designer received the ACS and reviews its design quality. This might be too personal for me. I'm an artist of sorts, and years ago B.C. (before computers), I worked in the Graphic Design field. When I saw the ACS, the design intent was apparent— compliance through intimidation and altruism.
