A friend proposed doing a retrospective on a project I did a couple years back. It is here: TurKit Retrospective: An Interview with Greg Little
I think the interview approach worked really well. I suck at writing. Well, I hate it in any case. But I don't mind talking about research. And if the interviewer knows what they're doing, they can withhold the stupid things I say, and make stuff make sense.
And I only spent like 10-20 minutes being interviewed. It is so much more efficient than writing! I'll have to ask her how long she spent writing it up though — it may not be a net efficiency gain.
