In case you did not see it, my partner Jago Constantine is conducting his annual DJ survey again. He surveyed well over 200 DJ's last year, and published the results in his blog and here.
The 2010 poll was read by thousands of people and had influence on the club scene.
This surveys is limited to DJ's on the LGBT (or gay) club scene. In order to vote, you have to have professionally DJ'd at an LGBT club. You can read about it on Jago's blog --- all you have to do is send him a list of your top three choices on a note card or in an IM, and you can vote for yourself if you feel that your are a top DJ.
Make sure that you let any DJ that you know on the LGBT scene to get their selections in to Jago by June 24.
I need to clear up some things now regarding this.
First of all, this is Jago's poll. It is not mine. I can honestly say that I have nothing to do with it, other than let Jago post information about it in my blog. However, Jago is my partner of almost three years and someone who I am madly in love with, and my blog will promote anything he is doing. In addition, it is very doubtful I would even be in Second Life now if I did not meet Jago in October 2008.
I would not do a survey like this myself, it is way too controversial for my tastes. To begin with, I am friends (and even family) with many DJ's, and I do not want to have to explain to anyone why he or she may not have made Jago's top cut (answer-- its all in the votes). I will vouch for Jago being scrupulously honest in the process. In addition, Jago is very smart and he does a great job tabulating all this.
Last year, I received complaints from several DJ friends who did not make Jago's final list, and even some from a few that did. Some were very angry and took their frustrations out on me. Anyone who does not like Jago's methodology, or the idea of the poll itself, or suggestions to improve it, needs to get with Jago on this, and should leave comments under the post in his blog. I would really appreciate it if you would!
