Thanks again for writing up this summary (after doing all the work of
running the survey)!  I just realized that the survey is kind of
hidden on the site right now: nothing links to it directly.  Where
would you prefer to link it from?  The sidebar 'More Info' section?
The documentation section?  Having a couple of links to it would help
discoverability, and at the end of 2012 or in 2013 we might want to
reactivate it to see what has changed once a year or two have gone

The industry breakdown is indeed quite interesting... This makes me
think:  I'd love it if folks could provide us with short 'IPython
success' stories we could add to the site (and they could come from
any origin, not just industry but also academia and hobbyists).
