    Hey Pete,

    Great article again, by the way. Sorry about the quotes mix-up. Generally quotes posted to website are from a previously reported interviews. You should just specify once at the beginning that the interview were with you. For an article like this, you could let it be known, in the opening slide, that you conducted numerous interviews that will be detailed in later slides. Hope this helps.
