I'll certainly participate if that works for you.  I'm in the UK.  I'll even let you meet Newt!

"I had to go back and transcribe all of my speech notes from my Newton, which is what I usually use for giving speeches from, because I wasn't sure I was going to be able to read it in this light, so I had to transcribe the notes onto paper. Unfortunately, my Newton is better at reading my handwriting than I am. So, there may be a pause while I try and decipher what I've written."

Subject: [NTLK] Love letter to Newton

I threw this idea out there a couple years ago, I’m in video production and I thought it might be nice to, as I travel, meet up with fellow Newton users and collect interviews about the Newton, some of the stories, how people “fell in love” with the newton, about the community that sprang up around it, what was so great about it. It would be a personal passion project, but I think I would only embark on it if I could get a reasonable number of people involved and ready to talk.

I guess this would be different from some other media about the newt because I myself was an avid user, and it seems to me to be a natural thing to do to make a short film. 

Is anyone interested in contributing to this project, or should I put it to rest?

Warm regards,
