Personas (was Re: Powerpoint vs. "regular" slide s)

Andrei, it sounds like you have many preconceptions about what
personas are and/or should be. As a means of user modeling, personas
(at least the way we conceived of them at Cooper) were intended
to be a tool that connected research directly to design.

Personas (was Re: Powerpoint vs. "regular" slides)

Andrei was saying that Personas are not good for many reasons. But he was
implying that Personas somehow are a replacement for observation, interview,
and other forms of direct (and indirect) contact research with end-users and
customers.

Andrei, I don't quite get it. Personas don't replace research, but rather
they are one possible tool of many for modeling research.

Beyond big personas and power points

[Inspired by the two threads, particularly, by recent Robert
Reimann's comments]

Has anyone got any data/observations/stories on how the persona method
works in different cultures?

I have none.

FBI Case Management Software

Does anyone know why the FBI scrapped the Case Management/Collaboration
software built by SAIC? Was it a systems architecture problem or user
requirements problem? They aren't saying much, obviously, other than
they changed "requirements" a million times.

I thought I knew the answer ("Old Kinderhook"), but there's more to the
story, nicely related by the Straight Dope:

IxD in the olden Days

Hi,

I'm a designer from Bangalore, India.

I'm curious about the way this discussion is started with the word "OK"
Could anyone tell me the Subtleties or reasons behind this. I'm more
interested with the cultural aspects of this action. In my culture, and
in the olden days of paper letters, people used to mark the envelope and the
page corners with yellow color of turmeric. It used to symbolize the good
news inside.
