Great tool, it helped me find a few blind spots in my Javascript toolkit. Also interesting to see Microsoft topping a few lists. Ten years ago when I was working with the nascent open source tech evangelist team, it was difficult to get any traction within the oss community. Satya has really put them on the right path.
Pretty cool. Surveys are one way to check the pulse of the JS ecosystem. Github Stars is the other. The results of both of these pretty much overlap, right?

@yvoschaap just to clear up any confusion, this is not my project, I just hunted it for a friend :) And yes I do have a business model. StateOfJS had sponsored links for example (Rising Stars doesn't generate income as far as I know, but I'll let @michaelrambeau answer).
@sachagreif @michaelrambeau confusion my mistake. Anyway, both projects are great tools to make sense of all things javascript.
@yvoschaap Hello Yvo, no business plan behind the project, I wanted to talk about things I like and see what it takes to get popular when you publish something. "Luck Is What Happens When Preparation Meets Opportunity"... so I try to be prepared, this is my state of mind.
Awesome to see D3 is still in the mix after all these years.
