Sarah Jones (Typical College Day) CS 321 Lesson Six Personas Page 17 It is now the middle of the semester and Sarah is working with her study group for her Psychology class to generate discussion questions for class. During a break in studying, Sarah pulls out her phone, and demonstrates it to Jason by taking a picture of him. She shows him the picture on the phone, but offers to email it to him. During the day and on her way home Sarah takes some additional pictures: a squirrel; a friend with her mouth full at lunch; the Campanile in the rain; people with umbrellas. In all, she ends up taking 11 pictures before she gets home that night. Her pictures automatically upload to PhotoCat and she views the thumbnails when she gets home. By default, PhotoCat sorts the pictures by time so it’s easy for her to find the recent pictures she wants to include. She creates her blog for the day and writes about Jason; she knows her friends in Georgia will be interested to finally see a picture of him since they’ve read about him in her previous blogs. She inserts an image link for each thumbnail she likes from the day into her blog. When she clicks a link near each thumbnail in PhotoCat, it automatically copies the needed HTML code to the clipboard ready for pasting into her blog. Next, Sarah makes sure Jason gets a few pictures in his email. She sees the picture of him that she wants to share towards the top of the thumbnails and she also shares a few of her more artistic pictures. She remembers one picture she took of Alcatraz that she especially liked. She searches for “Alcatraz” and finds a picture from her trip there. It isn’t the exact picture she wants, but she quickly spots the correct one since the thumbnail is only a few lines below. After selecting the pictures to share, she enters Jason’s email address and composes an email to him (on the PhotoCat site) that will notify him of the photoss he can look at online. Now Jason can follow a link automatically included in his email to view the pictures she has shared. She decides to send some pictures to her family while she’s using PhotoCat since she hasn’t been in touch with them for a few days. She selects some recent pictures, enters the email address and sends them a note with a link to the photos from PhotoCat. She doesn’t include the picture of Jason since she’s not sure what they would think of her crush. She isn’t worried, though, since PhotoCat only shares the photos are selects doesn’t allow browsing of other photos unless she intentionally shares them. She finishes up for the day and logs out of PhotoCat.

Using Interview Results To Construct Personas Step 6: Expand description of attributes and behaviors Sarah Jones (Distance Communicator) Sarah Jones is a 19-year-old freshman that has moved from Atlanta, Georgia, to attend UC Berkeley. She lives in an apartment with three other freshmen that are some of her main friends on campus. She hasn’t decided what she is going to study but she is leaning towards psychology because she enjoys social interaction—even if she is sometimes a little shy. She bought an inexpensive camera phone with a one-year contract when she first moved to the Bay Area to serve as a way to keep in touch with her friends and family back home. The camera fit in nicely since she didn’t previously own a digital camera and her parents agreed to pay the bills as long as she stayed within the minutes allowed in her service plan. Sarah feels comfortable using technology and knows how to use the Internet and her Windows notebook. She uses the Internet to communicate with her far-away friends—most of whom go to Georgia Tech—by posting pictures and observations of her new surroundings on blogger.com. The Picassa software she uses uploads her blog pictures for her. She spends an hour or two every day posting pictures, writing, and commenting on the blogs of friends. She adds ordinary things to her blog such as pictures of April, her flamboyant roommate. She is also likely to post pictures of things such as the guy she has a crush on but has barely talked to, a blouse she wants to buy, or the strange guy she saw yelling “happy, happy, happy” on campus. Sarah organizes pictures on her computer by date. She sometimes renames pictures if they contain something significant, but she doesn’t do so often or consistently. She uses Picassa to scroll through her pictures by date when she needs to find more “appropriate” pictures to email to her parents and older brother. At this point she has over 1,000 pictures since she takes pictures every day and keeps all of them. Organization is starting to become a problem because of the sheer numbers. Goals: • To take lots of photos throughout the day so she’ll have some that express her current experience and environment. • To review the photos taken most recently so she can upload the ones she likes best to her blog for the day. • To see many recent photos in one place so she can select the most appropriate ones for emailing to her family. CS 321 • To find pictures of her Berkeley friends and scenic pictures for emailing to her family. Lesson Six Personas Page 11
