The Interview With A Cruiser Project
This seems like a good place to ask around for suggestions on people to interview. The project is described below (same description I posted on another forum, if you've read that part just concentrate on the new top stuff here
If you have been cruising outside of the US & Canada for more than 2 years and think it would be fun to answer 10 questions about cruising (for example interviews, see the website), please nominate yourself by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
If you know someone that you think would be a great interviewee that fits that bill, please also email email@example.com
The second interview went live today with Pat & Ali of Bumfuzzle and over the next 3 weeks I have interviews already in hand with SV Sereia, Esper & Annie Laurie. Interviews come out on Mondays.

About the project
The purpose of the project is to record some of the wisdom of the masses of cruisers who are out there on the water for the dreamers and planners still at their desks by using a focused interview format.
The interviewees are cruisers who have been cruising outside of the US & Canada for more than 2 years. The interviewees are not in any way selected randomly but this is not a closed pool. Anyone may suggest themselves or a friend for an interview. See the FAQ
page for more information.
The interviewer is Livia from SV Estrellita 5.10b
In addition to a starting pool of questions that Livia generated, readers of her blog were asked for questions, interviewees are asked to generate questions, and readers of The Interview With A Cruiser Project are encouraged to submit questions
. As you can see it is a steadily growing bank of questions
. Each interviewee is asked 10 questions via email, drawn from the larger bank. As the base of interviews grows, there will be overlap with each question eventually being answered by multiple cruisers. The Project is designed so that readers can sort the interviews to see all interviews that addressed any question in the bank. See the FAQ
page for more details on searching.
