Hey! Ruff Ruffman here! I know... I've been away for a while. But now I am officially a Humble Media Genius! Don't ask me how. I got the certificate online.

Yes, my first step in launching my new career as a Humble Media Genius is to HEAR FROM YOU, my adoring fans! And, uh... also from the rest of you.

All you have to do is answer some questions about YOU and how YOU use all those cool gadgets you have in your life. It'll only take a few minutes -- and it'll help me make my new AWESOME Web site even AWESOMER!
