How old are you?
 
Having taken several MOOC courses, I'm interested in the participants. There are so far generally some remarkably young participants. And then people like me, 54 and out of school for a while now. It's nice to be "back" at Caltech; I graduated here in Physics in 1980.

I'm also a Caltech alum, from your era, as you can probably infer from my user name. :)

Soon after I started this course, I created the "Languages used" poll.

Now I don't see how to create polls, so maybe it is disabled.

Seems that the poll has more views than any other post that I see, but not so many votes.

If you can figure out how to make one, make an "age" poll.
