Most of the folks were random people plucked out of #drupal-support
or acquaintances of people in #drupal. I explicitly tried to not
sample the CivicSpace folks and these results still came through.

Ok. Let me think about how to introduce that into the self

that didn't come out in the interviews. But then this is more art
than science and I do want public review to make sure the results
Thanks for the feedback.
