Compared to What?

Feeling free to blatantly point to my own take on "Compared to What?,"
<http://meiert.com/en/blog/20080703/compared-to-what/>. I understand
this concept's root in information design, but worry about the
supposed fact that not only many "designs", but rather news sources
fail in answering that question.

Tell us your fieldwork War Story

You may have seen that we started a series devoted to fieldwork War Stories on our blog. As I wrote at the launch of the series, "These experiences – the crazy household, the dog that does his business on your shoes, the GPS failure – are inevitable and are often (at least in hindsight) hilarious. Exchanging these stories is a way of socializing our technique and creating learning opportunities for both tellers and listeners.

Examples of Cooper-style "requirements"?

Our team has just developed an extensive set of context scenarios,
describing how our personas will interact at a high level with the web
application we intend to develop.

About Face spends barely 1.5 pages talking about extracting requirements
("the personas' needs") from scenarios. I get the basic idea, but I learn a
lot better from examples. Perhaps some of you out there have real
requirements sets you could share?
