Subject Re: Blog idea: interviews with AOO developers

Rob, I offered to interview others since I have not done anything helpful to the project yet.
I am still avialable - I guess I hid my offer between ideas on my last post.

OK.  Maybe that will be enough of an incentive (or threat).  If no one
else volunteers to be interviewed, I
 will interview Don for the blog,
