Egghead time for fandom: Take Daryl's survey!

If you have not had the pleasure of seeing Prof. Daryl Frazetti use Spock or Yoda or Bilbo to suddenly make anthropology understandable ... and even entertaining ... then you better keep an eyeball out for him at San Diego Comic-Con, New York Comic-Con, and a passle more. I owe him a lot for opening a few doors for me at those locales and more: my well-traveled "Between the Cracks" Trek show has seen a huge new audience this year, and I've had the chance to see a whole new swath of fandom of ever widening flavors. (At right: Seattle's Emerald City Comic-Con)

He's also on track to organize fellow educators who use genre franchises to get their point across, and do a lot more publishing in the same field as well.

SO: Until you get the treat of hearing Daryl in person, please help him out with this crusade—the use of all our genre faves in teaching—by taking this survey about your fan habit and outlook. (Word for the day: can you say "ethnographics"?)

It's confidential, of course, and just 23 questions, most of them multiple-choice. The results will all be collated to chart trends and demographics in his pop culture research. And what fan can resist telling the world just how it really is?
