Sounds good to me. Perhaps this could be a place that a survey might have some value. In other words, what things are we interested in knowing about others (in addition to mundane items like where we were born and how many siblings and pets we have or had)?
Besides, if we set up a good enough format, John can write his own biography (I guess that would make it an autobiography).
