I've been doing well. Thanks for the followup three months later. I was wondering whether you were ever going to get back to me.

Since you prefer to do the complete impersonal style of the Google Forms Informational Interview, I would advise you to also try the Google Search Information Interview. I sure you can find a wealth of information about Product Management online. It also requires less personal interaction and followup, which appears to be what you're looking for anyway.

Seriously... what response do you expect to recieve after claiming to "really really appreciate" it if I could give you a few minutes, then not even sending back an e-mail after I respond within 24 hours saying that you can call me whenever you want with your questions.

Hey Paul,

How have you been doing ? Hopefully you're settled down and enjoying MS.

If you have some time, it would help a lot if you could answer some product management questions for me. (I'll be sending out the questions in another email using google forms)

Sure thing. I'm in Seattle this week looking for apartments, so just give me a call whenever. Chances are I'll just be walking around somewhere in the city.

Hello Paul,
I recently came across your profile on the yale message boards and as some one keen on following a very similar career track, I would really really appreciate it if you could give me a few minutes to talk about yale and how it is in general for product management.

Cheers !
