Kaelin Consulting

Mark W. Kaelin

I have over 25 years of experience in the electronic publishing industry. I was an editor for CBS Interactive for eleven years, where I was responsible for acquiring, editing, and writing technical content for daily publication on CBS Interactive properties TechRepublic.com and ZDNet.com. My duties included the recruitment and development of contributing talent. Prior to CBS Interactive, I was an editor with ProQuest for 12 years, where I developed, designed, edited, and maintained an array of university and business school supplemental curricula products. Before ProQuest, I was a public accountant for five years, specializing in tax preparation and in compilation and review engagements. In addition, I have performed independent consulting services over the last 30 years for various business clients.

Polls and Analysis

One of my specialties at TechRepublic was conducting polls of the audience and then analyzing and commenting on the results. It was one of my favorite content types because it allowed me the opportunity to express a point of view and provide some perspective to the audience. The polls and their results also gave the audience the opportunity to comment in the forums. Audience engagement in its most raw form.

I asked this poll question several times over the years in anticipation that eventually Windows XP would become an orphaned operating system. 

New Poll: What percentage of your enterprise is running Windows XP?
