GPWA TIMES October 17, 2007
Affiliate interview series debuts
In the past two issues of the GPWA Times magazine, we have interviewed eight GPWA members about their sites, their work and their lives. For space reasons, we weren't able to run the interviews in their entirety. So, we've decided to post them online. We will be posting one each week and featuring them in the newsletter, starting with this issue. In addition, we will be linking to the interviews from each member's GPWA profile page. We think you will be impressed and moved by what our members have to say.
