Here is the link to the interview questions [0] that are used for the
various ongoing interview series around the communities. If you all
create the list of standard/baseline questions to ask please add them
to this list of questions so we can keep this as up to date as

These stories would be great for the following locations:

 * Fridge which at the moment being maintained at
 * Ubuntu Weekly News
 * Full Circle Magazine - Ronnie Tucker
 * You In Ubuntu Blog  - Amber Graner
 * OMG! Ubuntu - Benjamin Humphrey
 * Plus any other sites you may know that would reach the intended audience

Might also want to try to get a few of the podcasts to mention them as well:

 * Ubuntu UK Podcast
 * Full Circle podcast
 * plus any other cast site you may know of

To get them posted to Fridge and Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter these just
email the news team [1] or pop into ubuntu-news on irc and let the
team know that way. I can't speak for OMG - but if you get these
posted on The Fridge then You-In-Ubuntu and FCM will get the link.

I hope this helps a little.
