The Obsolete Interview

Jeff Jarvis has some very thoughtful observations regarding the Vogelstein/Calacanis/Winer interview flap.

I’ll add this to my comments from yesterday, based on some pushback from a few journalist readers of DF: If you’re writing a lengthy, in-depth profile, then yes, absolutely, meeting the subject in person (and recording the audio of your discussions) can give you insight you’d never get from email alone. But that’s not what this case with Wired, and most interview situations, are about. This is about getting a few comments to add color to a piece.
