Does anyone want to be interviewed about the challenges of running a 24/7 open community with KALW?
I said I would via Skype, after the 15th (when I'll be in Paris).  Holly, of KALW, said she would like to talk to someone in town, too.
Please contact Holly if you would like to be interviewed about this.  You can see what I wrote to Holly as an intro to the topic, below.

Hey Mitch,
Thanks so much for getting back to me! Do you know how long you'll be in
Brazil for? KALW is on a break until the 15th, but I can see with one of my
editors if we could try to record an interview through Skype when we're
back in session. Otherwise, do you know if any of the other co-founders
might be available to talk? It would be great if I could interview someone
who, like yourself, has seen Noise Bridge from the beginning.
Thanks again,
