Greetings labmembers!

Many thanks to those of you who participated in our labmember survey. 
And many apologies for delaying in posting the responses (we'd hoped to 
post them on the new/improved website, but it's taken longer than 
anticipated to get this all together.)

There are a number of interesting observations about the results of this 
survey. For example, there appears to be (not surprisingly) two main 
subcommunities: the "MEMS" group and an "Electronics" group -- this is 
especially apparent in the ranking/preferences of equipment priorities. 
Also very interesting: it seems that about 30% of respondents have been 
labmembers for 12 months or less, and nearly 80% of labmembers don't 
cap. Overall, most aspects of the lab were rated "Good" to "Excellent" 
(a significant improvement over the last time the survey was 
administered about two years ago.)

Your comments would be much appreciated. I will post them on the 
website, if you email them to me.
