Short interviews happen at my desk. I have a spare chair and a ton of
whiteboard space, and I'm generally sitting at the computer, so I can draw
stuff on the whiteboards or type it up as it happens.

This is also my technique. It really upset some people at my current job when I first did this, though. I would look them in the eye, ask questions, and type the answers while interviewing them. Other times, I will "sit in the corner" of a meeting and type nearly everything said.

Bad part of doing this -- now EVERYONE expects me to be at their meetings :)
