I was away for the weekend and was unable to respond right away to your interview with Mr. Atkins and the response that ensued by us in the online community. I don't know about other people or not, but I think that everyone is getting frustrated with communicating. You're frustrated that we aren't communicating very well, and we're frustrated that your interviews aren't very enlightening.
You can tell by these interviews so far that no one really feels like talking about what happened with Maddison and Adam. Either they're not interested or they're not ready. Likewise, from reading the conversations in the forum, I don't think the online community is ready... just yet. Maybe we need more time.
Like Mr. Atkins, I think the online community needs more time to regroup, look back on Maddison's videos and death, and come up with the answers that you're looking for. I suggest asking your advisor for an extension, especially concerning the people in your interview schedule. We want answers from them, you want answers from us, and you are our only link between us and them.
I think giving us a few more days in between interviews would be really helpful. Preparing for these interviews must take some time, and perhaps giving us more time to help you would reflect in the outcome of your interviews. I know that you're really anxious to just finish this project and move on, but I don't think you're getting anywhere at the rate you are going.
It's difficult to ask, but could you please indulge us with a little bit more time? You admit to being slow, and I think the online community is realizing that our current (and past) efforts are moving slowly, too. But as you can see from the forum conversations we're working on getting the kinks out of the system.
Just a thought I'd throw out there.
