This goes back to my post in the recent JBuilder thread.

It would be good to know who's using what out there - (technologies, patterns, products, approaches) In terms of actual numbers.
In that regard, TSS could be embellished with the ability to do user-initiated polls.
Simple stuff would do - the ability to ask a question, provide a few options, restrict votes to one per login, total up votes and crank out a summary.
Polls could be initiated by users, just like new articles, but have to be vetted by TSS moderators.
One interesting benefit of this would be that readers would have concrete information that they could take to their managers while making a proposal for investing in J2EE technology.
