Warning: This post was published more than 10 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 10 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
Dr Monica Whitty, a newly appointed psychologist at Queen’s University, Belfast, is conducting some research and wants your help. This isn’t usually the kind of thing I’d post, but the slightly surreal fact is that this unexpectedly dropped into my email inbox whilst I was actually walking past Queen’s, having never been anywhere near the place before in my life.
The purpose of this study is to ascertain how individuals in different countries use their work computers and/or laptop computers. It also asks how they protect their work computers and/or laptops from security risks.
I’m looking for individuals 18 years or over and currently live and work (full time/part time or casually) in Australia, the Netherlands, Singapore, the UK, or USA, you are invited to fill out this survey. Only people who use a computer and/or laptop at work are invited to complete this survey (although you don’t need to use one regularly).
A summary of the results will be published from about November 2006 – December 2006 on my website: http://www.psych.qub.ac.uk/staff/teaching/whitty/profile/index.aspx
It’s a very short survey, and can be found here.
