New poll: how do you expect to be a year from now?

by Volker Weber

2008 has brought bad news for many. What is your outlook for 2009? Will you be better off a year from now? About the same? Or worse than today? Please vote in the sidebar.

The results:



Why must ebery body ask this silly question? There ist not one day without reading or hearing about what people expect from 2009. I can't here it anymore. The more you ask the more pessimistic answers you will get. And the more people read pessimistic answers the more they themself become pessimistic.

Wolfgang, just take a ook at the current stats: onnly 14% expect to be worse off, while 53% expect to be better off. Maybe it's not always the same ol'.... Of course, you'd have to answer to the poll to see the stats. :-)

I suppose in general vowe's readers are happier and more optimistic than the average John Citizen - 'cause vowe is a good mother :-)

Happy New Year to everybody - the pessimistic and the better off!

Sorry, this is for the German readers of vowe only (simply as I can't translate that into proper English...):

Kopf hoch, wenn der Hals auch dreckig sein mag!!!

In dem Sinne: 2009 wird gut!


P.S.: Evtl. kann ja ein Multilinguist das passend übersetzen!? Merci!
P.P.S.: Happy NEW YEAR to all of you!!

I'm optimistic about 2009. Every crisis is also a chance.

Our "Outlook" for 2009 will be Lotus Notes 8.5. We don't allow Outlook on our corporate network. BTW, put me down for "better off".

Don't have to put you down. Just vote in the sidebar. It's where you would look for it in your Notes 8.5.

The poll section just shows the results. There is nothing to click that allows me to cast my prediction.
