Today we had a class by Alan Monroe about Scenarios & Persona and as part of it we decided to make something to bring in for lunch from the country we were born in. As a Scottish delicacy I made Empire Biscuits from my grans recipe and using some of her homemade jam. What's better is they all got eaten, so I was really chuffed.
The lecture was interesting, however between the first part and second, I got to talk to Alan about my own project & about Meares-Irlen Syndrome & how it manifests itself. It was interesting because he said a lot of the symptoms he actually suffered from and he seemed really interested. He also had been talking about how we generalise people into pigeonholes and end up designing for the wrong people which is why persona are so important.
Hazel ever suggested that Alan himself could end up being on of the persona's for my project.
