You are incredibility diverse and passionate. Last fall over 320 of you participated in our first OKF community-wide survey. You gave us an incredible view into you, your needs and how we at OKF can better support you. This is the first of three posts to show you: who you are, some analysis on your responses and, most importantly, how we are working to meet your feedback. Responses came from around the globe: Argentina to Indonesia to Norway to South Africa to the USA.

Today’s post is a few shiny examples to show you more about you. Without the community, OKF is just a green logo. We hope that you will enjoy this window into your OKF:
