Yesterday was the first full interview including the new questions you contributed to the journalist tools to communicate with sources interview script. The first three were interviews focused on these questions only for the purpose of figuring out how to fine tune them.
The good news is that they work well and it makes for a better dialog with the journalist. Before they were introduced I felt some journalists were kind of uncomfortable because the focus was mostly on tools and this is not their strong suit. Yesterday the interviewee passionately shared his vision and that was an almost instant ice breaker.
The downside is that it made for a very long interview (90 minutes) and we did not get a chance to discuss about the tools as much I would have liked. I have a feeling that it was in part because we came to the tooling questions after 30 minutes of interview. But it’s just a feeling. Even though we took 90 minutes, I had to cut a number of questions to shorten the interview.
I’m not going to conclude anything from this one interview. The interviewee was a super interesting person and maybe we would have discussed hours with a two lines script Another interview is scheduled next week and I’ll add to this thread with more feedback.
To be continued!
