Borrowing from the idea of the Pluspora Check-in get some tabletop conversation going. If you have any questions that you want to get on the list to be asked, let me know. Also, if you'd like to be added or taken off the list of participants, let me know.

If you could interview any game designer (alive or dead), who would you interview and what question would you ask?

Monte Cook or Ed Greenwood. I've always had a hard time with setting design, and both of these have proven themselves to be very good at the craft of world design. I'd want to pick their brains on how they go about designing their worlds.
Tough one. I admire a lot of game designers, from Ken Hite and Robin D. Laws to Steffan O' Sullivan. Even video game designers like Chris Crawford would be high on my list.

The question, though, is the same: Can I buy you a drink and chat? :)
Also all of the Fate Core team, D. Vincent and Meguey Baker, John Harper, Steven Sechi...

Hell, I'll need to get a tab.
@Craig Maloney - I thought a lot about those people too. Many people in the industry, both past and present, have influenced my gaming style and design sensibilities.
In many ways it's like my drumming. Just about every drummer I've heard has influenced me in positive ways.
Graeme Davis about adventure design. He's written a bunch of really innovative ones.
Oh, great question! I have absolutely no idea who I'd interview and what I'd ask, uhm...
