Awesome, this is great information. If you'd be interested in writing
up some of the details of your work and experience I'd be happy to
post it under your name (or mine with attribution). If you wouldn't
have time for this I'd love to get a brief outline from you and put
together some questions that I could use to write a piece. We love
featuring our users and their awesome work. Let me know what you might
have time/appetite for. Thanks so much!
