Jed, it all starts with building a working relationship to them and they are HERE asking!
I don't have much technical advice to offer. As I said, I would just tell them to read a bunch of papers if they have not.
I am pretty sure they know who I am and how to reach me. I have a fairly high profile. I gave a talk at the last ICCF, and I am supposed to give one a the next one. My web site has my e-mail, telephone number, and mailing address. They have not reached out to me, so I suppose they have no interest. They have not reached out to Miles or any others, except McKubre. Ed tells us he had some pleasant conversations, but no deep exchange of information. So, either they are not interested in talking to people, or they know a whole lot more than these people, or they think they know more. I have no idea what they think. Frankly, it is none of my business.
With regard to the latest Mizuno experiment, I have made public every important aspect of it so far, and I will make whatever else I learn public after the conference. I am very busy preparing for that now, so I will not expand the Supplement until after the conference. They can read the documents and learn about as much from them as they could from talking to me directly. They can attend my talk, but I will not have time to say anything not already revealed in the papers.
If they want to do an expensive analysis of the super-productive mesh removed from the R20, that would be great. Unless they want to charge us for it. Or unless they want to keep the results secret. Or accept the mesh and do nothing with it for a year, and "forget" to return it. I suppose those are the options with an organization such as Google, but I wouldn't know. That is more or less what others have offered.
