As part of a broader study focusing on the state of the Internet in America, Pew Research has put together a fun pop quiz that lets you test your knowledge of the web and digital technology in general.
We won’t spoil it for you, but don’t expect anything too fancy. It’s just a rudimentary assessment of people’s understanding of the web – how it started, key moments in its evolution, and the tech leaders who contributed to the way it looks and feels today. It’s fun, even if you’re a complete noob.
You’ll be asked 12 questions, followed by a short demographic query that helps the surveyors gauge the knowledge level in people with different levels of education, male or female, young and old, etc. When you finish, you’ll be shown a couple of charts to see how you stack up against the 1,066 participants in Pew’s live poll. The correct and incorrect answers will be shown as well. So even if you don’t get all of them right, you’ll walk away with some extra baggage of knowledge.
