    Tempting, but we decided not to.

    Good job, big lead. Nice interview.

    My only suggestion: I would tone down the attitude a bit in the questions. But maybe I'm just an old fart.

    The soul patch under his belly button is kinda sexy.

    I haven’t looked back since, as they say, except to give high holy thanks to that janitor. The Breakfast Club had that much right. They are the brains of these operations.

    Awesome. Totally awesome.

    Yeah, the slang seemed obvious to the point of being contrived. In a Q&A, the interviewer is the canvas and the interviewee is the painting on the canvas that people are looking at in the museum. The interviewer's skill is the questions he asks and the ability to think quickly when the interviewee's answers fail to answer a question or prompt a question the interviewer hadn't thought of. You're not competing with the interviewee, you are attempting to bring out his personality.

    Seemed to me that he did a pretty good job of that. I liked it a lot. If people want more traditional stuff, they know exactly where to find it--in traditional media.

    I couldn't decide when reading this whether it was done via email?
