A survey is always an awesome first step in identifying the people with
whom you can dig deeper. A question in the direction of "are you willing
to talk more about this" is always a great place to end, and, even in an
anonymous survey, gives an opportunity to get more stories.

Related: Feathercast is always willing to do interviews. Lots of folks
won't write up a user story to save their lives, but will gladly chat
for 10 minutes, which we can then transcribe.
