It’s weird, but I get a bit sad when I’m wrapping up interviews with my participants, both in-person in scattered locations around the globe, at conventions, and by email over the course of a month or two. I almost wish I had more questions to ask, because I want to hear more about vidding, and keep the conversation going. But I’ve got to move on from collecting information, and into analysis and writing.
I’m considering the possibility of an online focus group to wrap up my data collection phase, but am not sure of the best way to do it. (I’d like to go out with a bang!) Drop me a PM or a comment if you’re interested in participating (if you’ve been interviewed before or not). Also: any suggestions on a good place to host it? Maybe a communal Google chat? Here in my LJ? Skype? What do you think?
