We are looking to conduct 30 minute phone interviews with members who receive recommended articles and read them, and members who receive them but do NOT read them. These interviews are being run by University of Berkeley business students who are helping us to understand how feature is used, and what we can do to improve.
If you have the time, and interest, could you please send us a private message and provide us with an email and phone number where we could best reach you to schedule the interview.
