Surveys… we all love them, right? The opportunity to click all those little boxes that apply? To have your voice heard? To use scroll bars?
We won’t kid you, we want to collect your (non-identifiable, non-personal) data for purposes of deciding what ads to feature on the site. We figure you’re smart enough not to begrudge us the chance to optimize our meager revenue (we try to keep advertizing minimal, unobtrusive, and relevant to weird movie fans’ needs and interests).
But this survey can also serve as an excellent opportunity to discuss the current state of movie delivery technology. For example, some of us in our 40s will only begrudgingly watch a movie on our computer screens if there is no other possible way to see it, and would never consider watching a film on a cell phone. Younger folk may not see that as a problem. There is also the issue of the morality of torrenting. At 366 we do not condone any form of copyright violation, but we recognize that there are different levels of ethics at play here. Downloading a movie that’s playing in theaters now is much different than downloading a movie that is not available in any form otherwise. We hope that, after you’ve finished the survey, we can discuss these sorts of issues in the comments—politely, of course.
Now get to it, please!
