@TalFishman: I have no idea if the data requested in this question are available even for a fee.
As I tried to say in the comments, I voted to close because I thought I was following the guidelines from the FAQ and meta, even though I agree more with Shane's answer in the meta question I linked to.
I do think the OP's question is legitimate because I would encounter data requests like that when I was a research analyst at the Federal Reserve.
Converting visits from a news aggregator (like Hacker News) is almost impossible. This has been an issue ever since SlashDot. You're more likely to get converts from organic search. Also, as most of the comments on HN have shown, those temporary visitors aren't quants either. And we definitely don't need a surge in non-quants on here!
@chrisaycock The proportion of traffic coming from organic search has also been on the rise. A small number of those are true quants, and we do seem to be getting a trickle of new high-quality users, such as 1920, 1969, 1988.
