I'm sorry that I have been recently MIA. My work on my dissertation has started to pick up (again), so I've been reading research and working on my interview questions. Today I had a small interview/ focus group session, and as I was transcribing the tapes, I realized that I laugh. A lot. I make Dr. Hibbert from The Simpsons sound downright dour. While the session went well, I have learned that I need to curb my laughter to help my interview technique (and to keep me [or whoever I hire to do all of my transcribing] sane).
