Have you ever tried something like that? Can you point out projects
that have done that successfully in similar spaces to ours (leading
edge tech hw)? A contract negotiation is a very tricky thing to carry
out, and putting it on a public forum is one of those things that
doesn't quite work well.

It's a social thing - just tell a prospective employer (or employee)
you are webcasting the interview and contract negotiations.
