Just to clarify, you would obviously not be anonymous to me, but no one but me will hear the audio and pseudonyms will be used in my actual dissertation. I'm sorry $15 doesn't seem appealing to you, I'm on a grad student budget. The interviews I have done thus far have been about 45 minutes long.

martin,
all kidding aside good luck. This is not the most mature group around. Hopefully you'll get some takers.
