You could try to find and ask the fabulous Don Hopkins.
I think he's involved with http://www.connected.tv/
so you could try phoning/emailing them and asking to have
a message passed on.
He was part of the NeWS dev team at Sun.
(He also invented the pie menu,
did the UI for The Sims, and lots of other
cool and noteworthy things. )
