Rohit Bhargava's New Approach to a book launch

We live in the DC area but strangly got the opportunity to chat for a long time at SXSW. Rohit was talking about new ideas for the launch of his book "Personality Not Included". In his post on "Influential Marketing Blog" Rohit is pitching a new way to promote his book.

Here is what he says:

My idea is simple: if you send me five questions that you want to know about the
book or personality, I'll write you a response on Friday that you can publish on
your blog. Let's call these virtual interviews (ie - interviews by email). You
choose whether to post the interview on your blog or not after you get my
responses, but I am essentially offering for ANY BLOGGER to send me interview
questions and I will respond with answers that are NOT cut and pasted, but
specific to your questions. I will send all my responses to you on Friday in the
order that I get your questions, and I will link to all the posted interviews on
Friday. On Monday, I'll be running a competition on my blog to let readers vote
on the Best Interview. The winner will get a signed copy of my book and a gift
certificate for $100 from Amazon. Here are a few reasons you may want to do it:

From Washington DC, Emirates is an outlier, it flies in the morning at 10.55 from Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) and reaches Dubai at around 8.30 a.m. Other flights, Etihad, Qatar and flights with European stopovers take off after 9 p.m at night. I love this timing but it does cause a disagreement in my house. My wife prefers to fly Eithad due to the timings. My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flig
