Hi,

Last week, during the SocialWeb Camp organized during the W3C track in
the WWW2009 conference [1], one of the discussions group to which I
participated focused on user experience and user stories.

We had only limited time, but I think we touched on interesting ideas
and topics, but the main lesson I drew from that exercice was that we
should really work hard on developing fairly detailed user stories that
show how a user would interact with distributed social networks.

As a starting point, I've written up one user story that shows how a
user interact today with a traditional/closed social network:
http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/socialweb/wiki/UserStories

I think we would need more of these, and also start mapping these with
their decentralized equivalent, maybe also with an analysis of what are
the cost/benefits of both approaches.

I meant to point the group to this once it would contain more
advanced/finished content, but I fear that if I do that, I'll keep
delaying working on it due to other priorities - so, if someone is
interested to work on this, please feel free to edit it (you should be
able to do that with your W3C account); if not, I hope I'll find some
time and bring more of my ideas in that document before too long :)

Maybe this is something I can introduce during the first call of the xg
next week?

Dom
