These are people that have helped us along, and given us valuable feedback. They play many roles, including working as our ‘eyes and ears’, acting as sounding boards (especially when they are not in the field that we’re exploring), and offering topic suggestions, among other things. Don’t feel bad if your name doesn’t make this list — there aren’t many that are willing to donate so much of their time.
