I like the moxie, but 52 weeks might be a bit much. I don't know that
we'd hold people's interest with a new interview each week, even
assuming we get them completed and published.

A monthly retrospective would be good, I think. What if we focused on
different teams in Fedora, major milestones, etc.? 

e.g. - September: FPL retrospective w/interviews; October: Major
technical achievements that landed 1st in Fedora; November: How Fedora
got its four Fs


I think those would have some social media value and interest. Thoughts?
