Hi everyone
O'Reilly, one of our sponsors, is looking for people to help them test 
their video materials.  If you are interested in helping them out, 
please reply to *ONLY Marsee Henon* *marsee at oreilly.com

We're looking for a few smart, diligent people to tell us what they 
think of our video training. If that's you, let us know and we'll get 
you a complimentary copy of the video.

The courses are from 1.5 to 10+ hours, and take different approaches to 
presenting their material. No matter which course you choose, we ask 
that you commit to watching at least 1 hour of the video (or tell us why 
you didn't want to do that!).

Once you've watched some or all of the video, send us the answers to 
these questions:

What did you like best about the video? Why?

What did you like least? Why?

Did you complete the video? If not, why not?

Would you recommend it to others?

Do you have suggestions for changes that would improve the video?

If you're game, take your pick from this list along with your 
oreilly.com <http://oreilly.com> login and send an email to 
marsee at oreilly.com <mailto:marsee at oreilly.com>. We'll add the video to 
your account.

We'll need your feedback by Monday, January 10th at the latest.
