Brian Murley over at Innovation in College media has a very useful number of pointers on how to use[ IM services to do online interviews](http://www.collegemediainnovation.org/blog/2007/06/28/the-art-of-the-im-interview/).

A few weeks back, there was a raging debate among journalists and bloggers about the “death of the interview.” A number of pundits weighed in on the pros and cons of phoners, in-person interviews, and e-mail interviews. For reference, see Stepno, Jarvis, Gillmor, Winer, Rosen, and Glaser. I commented somewhere that I thought the IM interview was a good compromise…

It’s a sensible take on the realities of e-face to face interviewing with some good tips.

Go and take a look.
