Nice to see you brainstorming question! Not sure if you have a plan for talking to users or not, but one thing teams have done in the past is to volunteer at a soup kitchen for a few meals. There is a list of places in the bay area that could be looking for volunteers here (http://www.homelessshelterdirectory.org/cgi-bin/id/cityfoodbanks.cgi?city=Berkeley&state=CA)

Also, here are some quick tips tips for the flow of a needs finding interview to supplement the Question-based interview how to, they are from a Stanford class on Software Design (http://hci.stanford.edu/courses/cs447/docs/NeedFindingCribSheet.pdf):

"some extremely truncated examples of questions for each stage:
• Introduction: “Hi, I’m a Stanford student studying coffee. I’m interested in
hearing about your experience with coffee. There are no right or wrong
answers, I just want to hear what you have to say.”
• Kick-off: “Do you drink coffee?”
• Build rapport: “Did you have a coffee today? How was it? Do you have a
favorite coffee?”
• Grand Tour: “Can you describe your most memorable coffee experience? Why
was it so unique? What happened?”
• Reflection: “If you were designing the ultimate coffee shop based on your
ideal experience. . .”

Looking forward to talking to you all tomorrow!
