The year has started strong for Urtak! We’ve seen tremendous usage from Andrew Sullivan, the great political blogger, and from 37signals, the great entrepreneurs. In each case, hundreds of thousands of responses were collected in a matter of hours.
But when it comes to engagement, it is hard to top The Blaze. The Blaze used Urtak to find out what their audience thinks about guns and gun rights and the results are astonishing. In just one day, more than 140,000 people have participated, asking 1500 questions and answering more than 4.2 million times! That means that the average user has answered 30 questions, and that Urtak has been collecting about 50 responses per second. For audience engagement and insights, Urtak is quite simply the best tool on the market.
The Blaze readers are about as gun-loving as you can get. Just click the following questions to see the results.

But what does 4+ million responses in a day really mean? It means that a massive, open, democratic, and constructive exchange of opinions online is possible. Compare the Blaze results to the 4+ million comments under Gangnam Style. Which is easier to make sense of?
It means that our team, ably led by Aaron Gibralter, has build a rock-solid piece of technology. Standing up to the punishment of tens of thousands of concurrent users is not easy, even for expert teams.
And it shows that we are well on our way to our goal of quantifying the whole world’s opinions. The information that was created over the last day used to exist only as thoughts in people’s minds – now it’s been turned into hard data. In five years, at anytime you wish to learn what any group of people in the world thinks about anything at all, you will turn to Urtak.
