I'm glad to learn that personnas (representative of classes of users)
were used to aid in the WAI site redesign.

They are more mind-stretching for me.

1. Wednesday evening Steve Mulder <smulder@molecular.com>
shared with the Boston Information Architects group


his ideas on Personnas in his 82-slide powerpoint presentation"

2. A prime reference is the book: About Face 2.0 – Alan Cooper

Alan Cooper has pertinent articles at   http://www.cooper.com

He has a newsletter that one can subscribe to free.

In it are articles about personnas:


Including four on "How to Create Personas"
and four on "Examples of Persona Use."

3. Another nice summary article where more detail is available:


Making Personas More Powerful: Details to Drive Strategic and Tactical Design


by George Olsen:

This includes further pertinent links.
