This discussion thread offers a place to discusst Chapters 4 - 7 and your examples of research interviews in virtual worlds. Two of these chapters are about such interviews-- let's start by discussing ideas and recommendations for virtual world interviews contained in Chapters 4 and 5.. In Chapter 4, Dr. Cabiria identified some best practices, as well as some unresolved questions about the protection of digital identity of participants.In Chapter 5, Ann Randall looked at potential interviewer effects. (You met Ann this week in the webinar.)

Please post your thoughts and questions about these two chapters, as well as your own plans or designs for research interviews in virtual worlds or games? How are you preparing to interview-- or how have you interviewed-- avatars as an avatar?
