Through the pandemic, like the decade before it, Technical.ly has stayed committed to covering changes and trends in your local tech community. But these changes have also come alongside hard pivots to our own business model. For instance, IRL events — once a staple of our community outreach — became impossible.

Now, we want to know: What do you want to see and read from Technical.ly? How can we do a better job informing you about what's happening in the tech economies of Baltimore, Philly, DC, Delaware and Pittsburgh, and in connecting you to other local technologists, entrepreneurs, company builders and the like? Have you interacted with the Technical.ly community more or less over the past year, and why? Tell us below.

This survey should take less than five minutes, and most questions are optional. As a bonus for sharing your thoughts, we'll pick a few people to get a signed copy of Guy Raz's book "How I Built This" when we close the survey in a few weeks. We'll also pick a random five people to win gift cards. (Note that to be entered to win, we'll need your email address; otherwise, the survey is anonymous.)

Thank you in advance for your feedback!
