I can sympathise with the surveyors. They seem to be interested in
parallel programming as in "using lots of hardware in parallel to
solve a problem" like SETI, CGI rendering farms, etc. I bet they got a
lot of responses from Erlang people writing internet servers & telecom
systems which are another kettle of fish entirely.

I don't think they did a very good job of spelling out what
applications they were interested in though.

Next you will be responding to functional programming surveys.. :-)
