I hope you guys do not mind. But I am curious as to the age distribution here. I am trying to correlate the tone, style and nature of discourse on the Nook, with that of another forum. Really, no judgment here. Just looking for variables that may account for it.

Hope no one is offended or put off.

Hi

Take a look here (How old is everyone?).

Take care, Mike

That poll is almost a year old though, the Nook has grown quite a bit since then. I'd be interested to see if the age distribution is similar or has changed, back then it was surprisingly balanced...with the exception of the 18-24 bracket.

Anyway, I'm 37...38 in September.

Hi Bryon

Very! true, but there's nothing stopping anyone from adding to that original pool of data...

Take care, Mike

Ah, since I had already voted I was not aware the poll was still open after all this time...they usually close after a week or two. Biggrin

I'll add to this one here for no other reason than I don't have much longer to be able to say that I'm 34. Turning 35 in a couple days. At least I've had a really nice haul this week! W00t

I find it interesting that 119 people have read the thread and only 20 know how old they are.

Very interesting. The other forum is much more skewed toward the youngins. Does that necessarily signal a negative trend? Not necessarily, but I'm tired of hearing about how Tabac soap smells like an old man. Also, the word "geezer" gets a bit overused at the other place. Hell, I'm 62 and don't feel a day over 60.HuhHuh

Thanks for listening.

You'd be surprised. One of my students told me the other day that it was his birthday. I said, "Oh yeah, how old are you?" He looked at me, puzzled. "It's not a hard question," I said. "You shouldn't really have to think about it that much."

BTW, I put myself in the 60-whatever crowd though I'm not quite there yet. A few more months though.
