The following was posted on the Textually website:
“The Pew Internet and American Life Project found that adult Americans are broadly divided into three groups: 31% are elite technology users, 20% are moderate users and the remainder has little or no use of the Internet or cellphones.
But Americans are divided within each group, according to a Pew analysis of 2006 data released Sunday. The high-tech elites, for instance, are almost evenly split four ways into:
– “Omnivores,” who fully embrace technology and express themselves creatively through blogs and personal Web pages.
– “Connectors,” who see the Internet and cellphones as communications tools.
– “Productivity enhancers,” who consider technology as largely ways to better keep up with their jobs and daily lives.
– “Lackluster veterans,” those who use technology frequently but aren’t thrilled by it.”
Try taking the test yourself and see where you fit in. I’m going to wager that you too are an Omnivore. Perhaps DEN needs to consider adapting an Omnivore mascot to reflect this!
‘Stay Tuned and Stay Connected!’
If you want to see where you fit, try taking the short quiz at the Pew Internet. Not surprisingly my results indicate that I’m an Omnivore. I make up 8% of the public. However, I’m not sure I fit into any of the following descriptors of Omnivores: ‘male, median age 28 (yeah, I WISH!), and student’.
