This page is shaping up great. With this, do we really even want to transcribe all the interviews? I understand the point is keeping it in case the original goes away, but there is a plethora of good links here ... --MitchO 13:25, 22 May 2008 (EDT)

If we do decide we want to transcribe every interview it will be one massive job and ongoing. It is possible but it will involve a hell of a lot of man hours. Do we have the number of people to achieve it? I didn't even realise that was the overall plan, I should probably pay more attention. I will get cracking on it at some stage if that's what wants doing but wow, should be fun. --BenS 13:40, 22 May 2008 (EDT)
Well, the last step of the Interview WikiProject as it stands right now is transcribing audio ones, at least. But yes, we really don't have the manpower for something like that right now (IMO), and there are other things to be done. But my initial point remains; this page looks good. --MitchO 13:56, 22 May 2008 (EDT)
The transcriptions were, to me, kinda the "it would be pretty cool if..." feature, but I'd still find it useful to have a page for each interview, etc., if only for a summary. (Colleen and I, and others on the forums, have been running into that problem of "he said this somewhere, I don't know where, now if I could only find...".) Completely agree that it's a low priority, perhaps the lowest of priorities, but I'd like to leave it up as an eventual target, since someday we'll have all the song pages the way we want them, more or less, and when that day comes, there will still be bored people with nothing better to do. ;) --Bry 15:09, 22 May 2008 (EDT)

OK as i was going through google again about to start adding more press coverage and i bumped into jawbone radio. Obviously there is a huge about about Dr. Coulton on the site and there are many podcasts featuring him and the such like. How are we going to organise Jawbone. Do we want to give it its own section so every time Coulton is in a podcast has its own page? I shall leave it for now but there is probably a lot that can be written from the content there and we need to decide on how that will be done. --BenS 09:54, 24 May 2008 (EDT)

Section created -- go wild. :) --Bry 11:59, 24 May 2008 (EDT)
OK thanks that seems logical, will take a while to just do the whole of that section i will get on it eventually. What was annoying as i was editing the page when you did it so it moaned at me. To be fair to you i did spend a good couple of hours or more editing the page. --BenS 12:11, 24 May 2008 (EDT)

I seem to have transcribed the whole of the Jawbone things, well all the ones that were on my computer when I lost internet for 3 days. Can someone suggest what format to upload them in. As in what to call the pages for each of them? Sorry if it's a silly question. --BenS 17:12, 28 May 2008 (EDT)

Nicely done, Ben! I'd suggest calling the pages by the title of the episode, such as Jawbone #93: The Wonderfully Magical Mystical World Of Jonathan Coulton, at least for now -- it may make sense, later on, to move it, but that's easy. Thanks! --Bry 11:06, 29 May 2008 (EDT)
