In previous years, I conducted interviews on topics with controversial aspects and competing interests for IEEE Concurrency and later for IEEE Distributed Systems Online with luminaries in the field of distributed systems.

I welcome your suggestions for topics and interviewees. — Dejan Milojicic, firstname.lastname@example.org.
