Next week, I'm giving a presentation at NIWeek 2008, the annual user conference for LabVIEW developers. As a call-to-action after my presentation, I'm asking engineers to calculate the size of their digital footprint and place themselves on the "LabVIEW community ladder," which I adapted from the Groundswell Social Technographics Ladder. I'm hoping by incouraging people to take the next "steps" (yes, that was a bad pun) more users will become "creators" or "critics" on our site. You can find my blog post with more details ; however, I would love to get feedback from this audience on the approach or hear about how you view the digital footprint concept.
