I took an unacceptably long amount of time to get back to Justin Hernandez of tivate with my A to his Q, but our email convo is now online. (Even despite my tardiness, he generously offered me beer on my next trip to Hawaii!) Apparently there's an alien social revolution going on.
Hmm, I guess I had it coming. When you're done finding inspiration from a penguin, the Rob Malda interview is certainly worth a look.
