Hello,

I just wanted to say that I really enjoy this blog - extremely useful insight for software testing. If you wouldn't mind, I would very much like your thoughts on a new company I work (perhaps even a new blog post in which your readers could add their responses as well). The company name is: uTest (http://www.utest.com). They are attempting to create a community testing model (first of its breed I believe) and we would very much like to hear your views on it. Thank you ver much and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best,
Jonathan
