Polling for interest in a European code4lib

Following up on discussion over on #code4lib and the code4libcon Google group, I've set up a short survey. The survey polls respondents to see what interest there is in a European event, and to assess whether such an event should be as well as or instead of a North American code4libcon.

Please register your views, and raise awareness of this survey ahead of the closing date, 15 February.

As noted in the survey itself, neither the code4lib community nor Talis are bound to hold an event at a time or in a place solely on the basis of this survey. The results are freely available, during and after the survey.

And before anyone asks, the rather odd set of locations are those that arose during the earlier discussions. If you have a preferred place that isn't listed, simply add it as an 'Other'.

Broadly, a European event was welcomed and (by a slight majority) a specifically European event was preferred to a model in which one code4libcon event moved between Europe and North America on some basis.

The 'other' comments to several questions make for interesting reading...
