Help some kids with their homework!

So I get an email from a group of NTU students. At least they bothered to email. I think Adri got one in her comments system.
...We are a group of five people doing Mass Comm in NTU and currently working on a project on Blogging. More specifically, our project focuses on how blogging impacts friendships, e.g. sub-topics like "In what way does blogging strengthen or weaken friendships?" and "Is the intended message of the blog accurately comprehended?". We would like very much to interview you and hope you are free this sat/sun or early next week? This interview will last about half an hour to an hour and will be tape-recorded (hope you dun mind... ^_^) We'll probably hold it at a coffee club xpress or Starbucks etc, and treat you to something. Also, because this project is on the impact of blogging on friendships, could you please bring a friend (who is also a blogger)? We'll be interviewing both of you separately. Hope it's ok with you. Looking forward to meeting you! Sincerely,...
I'm gonna be really busy in the next couple of weeks, so I can't meet up with them, much less bring a friend who is a blogger. So if anyone wants to help them, leave a comment here, and I'm sure they'll be trawling this space and others for more specimens. Or you could email one of them who's left her email address at Adri's: Gracia. Free Starbucks/Coffee Club Xpress leh! Do the kids a favour, help them with their homework a bit. Don't matter if the question/assignment set for them is damn cock! There's also another survey which someone's doing, and this is an online thing:
Hi, I am an undergraduate from the School of Communications and Information, Nanyang Technological University (Singapore). My fellow course-mates and I are conducting an online survey to study the practices and attitudes of bloggers on ethics and blogging as part of our honours thesis. We hope you can help us by taking part in our survey. We have retrieved your e-mail address from your weblog. Your weblog was, in turn, randomly selected using weblog generating services freely available on the Internet. Your participation in this survey is voluntary and should take no longer than 20 minutes to complete. All information will be kept confidential. We really appreciate if you can take some time off to participate in our survey.
Nabeh, random simi random? My blog damned famous one ok? But that aside, damned busy, these NTU kids, not like NUS whole day go seminar talk to LKY. Chinese New Year Dinner
iTunes' party shuffle is playing a copy of: Shoot the Messenger - Catatonia - Equally Cursed & Blessed, of which I have the original CD and therefore didn't steal music.

I received the email too. How blogging impacts friendships...hmm well I'm not an expert in the blogging-friendship dept..hell I don't even blog about my friends. Shall give this a pass and maybe get some of my other friends to help these kids out.

BTW, Catatonia is good. First heard them singing Mulder and Scully.

Ya, a bit the hard to do these interviews, what with work, family and maintaining the blog too. I felt a bit the bad not being able to say yes.

One of the NTU ppl here. Hey thanks for posting this on your blog (helping us out)... really appreciate it. We'd love to do an e-mail or IRC interview with you all too... just that our project specifies we must do an "in-depth interview" and we were trained on interviewing in person. Yeah... so interviews that are not in person can't be used in our project... sorry. ^_^
