Thanks for everyone's help:

My next project is trying to identify the big banks that are most
deeply involved in student lending. I'm also talking back and forth
with some of the people quoted in this piece and reaching out to
others who are interested--I'd love to help set up a conversation
between the people on this list and some organizers, economists, and
the like whose expertise might be useful...

Great stuff Sarah! 
Exactly the way I'd hope for the spirit of Contact to be remembered.

Thanks Sarah. I enjoyed the article and have already passed it along.
I know during one of our meetings we talked about getting in touch
with economists that could give us feedback and help us make our
protests more effective. So I look forward to that conversation.

Thanks, Sarah!

I didn't know about Steven Katz of Debtorboards.  Very interesting.  Are you in touch with him personally?  I should think he would be a useful consultative asset to this group.  Perhaps we might reach out to Katz and others (i.e. economists, as per Greg's suggestion) and add some new faces to the google group in order to amplify the conversation.

An excellent article Sarah! For me at least it really helps bring
things into focus a bit more. At this stage I think we still need a
lot of focusing. I'd be very interested to talk to real economists and
policy experts about this idea. The more I learn the more pitfalls I
see and the more potential solutions I see.
