Not a bad idea. Note that Google is paying two students to spend serious 
time on Grok documentation. But we can't have enough docs...

The problem is that we need somebody who's familiar with Grok, and we 
need decent English, which limits the set of people.

Well, I personally wouldn't mind being paid for some Grok work for a 
change ;). If I were paid I would actually be able to spend more time on 
Grok, like Martijn. And I can also be a cheap date when I'm having fun :).
