A DigitalPoint Forums thread shows that Yahoo! has reached out to some publishers in several cities in California. Yahoo! is inviting YPNers to join a focus group, and is paying them $200 for their time (which is a fair amount for a focus group). Some publishers remarked, "I would have done it [the focus group] for free, seriously."
Others received calls about a focus group taking place in mid-August in Los Angeles. JenSense also covers this.
