As a way of giving back, I modded here for quite some time. And then I got busy... I am the CEO of three Internet marketing companies now and I worked hard over the last decade to get to a position where I can travel a lot... which means when I *am* working, my focus needs to be on work... the work that pays the salaries of all my employees and partners. I do however continue to speak at the webmasterworld shows. I know a few of the other names mentioned are also busy running the businesses they've built by getting into the industry early on and being good at what they do, but again, I won't attempt to speak for them in regards to the question posed.
Luckily we can still read about your thoughts at sugarrae.com and follow you on twitter. I liked your "Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda Had Success with Affiliate Marketing" post, by the way.
