Board notes in class

A list of guesses by students in class regarding some search engine user figures. The question here had to do with what percentage of Internet users (according to a survey by iCrossing) know the difference between paid versus "organic" results. The correct response was somewhere around 50%. The reason student "A" won as opposed to studen "E" is because – as per a suggestion in class (possibly by me, perhaps by a student, I don’t remember) – we decided to ignore responses that were above the actual figure. This may be the Internet generation, but certain TV classics are familiar to them regardless.
