Using Interviews Effectively in Community Informatics

This is a  paper from some years ago about techniques for good interviews. It’s basic, but I think there are some basic rules that need to be followed in the collection of interview data. Technology has moved on a bit. You can now use Livescribe for recording and notetaking, but Express Scribe is still a great tool.   But there is nothing like being a very careful observer to all that goes on, both verbally and non-verbally.
