[Air-L] informed consent

I did my research using a VOIP program.  To obtain consent, I sent an email
to my respondents before our scheduled interview time, and then I had them
agree to the contents verbally (and recorded the statement of consent, along
with the rest of the interview).

The first one or two times I did the interviews I read the consent form and
then sent a copy after the interview.  I found this too time consuming, and
it was probably more difficult for the interviewee to follow along.
Definitely not a good note to start an interview on.
