Demon:

Great job with that article. It was very in-depth and very well thought out. Thank you for that!!

I think you covered everything to do w/ the subject. The only other way the subject could be looked at closer is by giving every instance of Parkour in the media case-by-case attention, hah!

yeah if i had the oppurtunity to do an article or something, i would turn them down, as i was explaining to other people in the forum. I may be able to critique other peoples articles but im not quite experienced enough to make one myself. I think you did a terrific job creating the guide demon. Nice work

The article mentioned referring the interviewer to articles.  Does anyone have some to suggest?

SF Parkour also has some new "Media Interaction Guidelines" on the forum.  It was written as a summary level, companion piece to APK's "Dealing with the Media".  Feedback welcome!
