Wow... Very interesting stuff, Harvey; you're right, personnas are really
mind stretching

Oggetto: Personnas -- way to assess web sites


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

     http://www.boston-ia.org

his ideas on Personnas in his 82-slide powerpoint presentation"
           http://www.muldermedia.com/presentations/personas

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:
