Jeremy,
   Rather than simply ignoring this, I thought I'd reply with my 
thoughts.

- This isn't the best place to see "the semantic web market". You won't 
get anything out of a survey on this list other than a little bit of 
information about some people who are interested enough to take part in 
meta-discussion on the SW.
- How about some vocabulary re-use? survey:name? What's wrong with FOAF?
- I expect you could get half of this information just by scraping the 
list archives for pointers to sites containing FOAF.
- If you're going to extract age, name, etc. information from people, 
we want a few things from you:
   - Some code of practice for ethical research
   - Some guarantees about what the data are to be used for, etc.
   - Your intents and goals set out ahead of time. If you're going to do 
a survey, you have to follow survey practices.
- There doesn't seem to be anything in your survey which would be of 
much use anonymously, or which could answer any questions for that 
matter.

   Care to fill us in?

Regards,
-Richard
