Default Quinquennial Survey Question

So, I got the link to the CAS Quinquennial Survey.

One of the questions on the survey (or at least my version of the survey; I think there are at least two) asks about the modes by which we get industry news, and specific examples.

Should the AO count as a "website" or "social media"?

We we're a bunch of actuaries, so I don't think that you can actually label anything about us as "social"

Default Survey

My version did not ask about news sources.

That took way longer than I would have preferred.

I also got version B. I think I called it "social media", but I waffled on that. I mentioned the ao in a comment.

I finally got around to the survey. Under "how you spent the last two years", they list both Reserving and Valuation. Is there a distinction here? I always used the two terms interchangeably.
