Victims: 
	* Is there a database of comments from development contributor and other contributors that
we can use? If so, we could start at the top and approach the name of one who posted the most
in the last year or so.  We could work our way down the list. They can always say 'not now...'
or 'no way'!
	* I like Rob's list of questions for starters - any more questions that would help in an
interview?
	* Is there a place set up to post the results? 
	* Louis - you had experience doing this before, do you suggest emails, skype - free trials
of Adobe Connect - anything helpful to use in an interview?

Hi Nancy,

This is good.  We have three people willing to do interviews.  Now we
just need a willing victim, or two or three.   Plan B is we all
interview each other ;-)
