    That last piece of advice -that an interview is never over – is a good one. I’ll keep that in mind. Thanks!

    My question is not directly related to interviewing per se, but I know you do a good deal of business reporting and writing so I figured you may know the answer. From my research I notice there is no consensus in terms of start and end dates for the various generations, especially once you get past Generation X.
    As writers, where can we turn for ‘definitive’ (I’m using that term loosely) answers on cultural issues (like how to describe what generation an interview or feature subject is from) that aren’t really a matter of fact?
    I don’t want readers to think I don’t know what I’m talking about if they have a different view on what defines, say Generation X. I’m very interested to know what you and your other readers think about issues like this where it is hard to find a consistent answer while doing background research. As always, thanks for the helpful tips you provide (I’m actually using one now to turn one interview into two articles!).
