Personas creation process for online application

Hi all,

I am currently working on personas for my company's online software in order to help us to understand and know in an accurate way our users. For that work I will conduct face to face interviews with selected clients/users

Because our software contains advanced functionality that are not used by all users; I am wondering which process should I adopt in creating these personas.

Should I create 4-5 personas for each feature that we are re-designing or should I work on overall set of personas that will be refined for each feature.

Thanks for your answers

Web applications, Web sites - Boundaries

Hi all,

Yesterday, I had an interview for a position at a major online selling company. While discussing my work and my vision of usability and design, few questions came and I thought it could be a good point to share some of them and to have your inputs about these thoughts.

1. How are you making the difference between a web app and a website?

2. Do you consider Google as a web app or a website?

Feel free to answer or to give your thoughts about theses questions as I am looking to have different points of view.

I am currently looking for links to studies and datas about RIA usages and especially new usages on SaaS applications and web 2.0  websites.

Adobe Air / MS Silverlight... what's next

If you are working with Air or Silverlight ... where do you think it's
going? What is the current state of the tools? There yet? Not? How do we
see these changing what we do?

Love a discussion on what changes with them? What's the same? Are they
harder to build and develop then other alternatives? What do they mean
for the programmers/developers we work with?

Personal interest here:

Looking for examples of AIR and Silverlight that mimic a singular
environment...i.e. almost like creating your own os with its own
behaviors, affordances etc.

Methods for Documenting RIAs

Greetings (my first post)!

As we continue to adopt asynchronous models of interaction (AJAX,
Flex/AIR, etc), documenting these has become much more complex and
dynamic. Would anyone mind sharing ideas or links?

So far, the best I've heard has been to rely more upon Wireframes and
Prototypes to communicate rich interaction -- however these still
feel insufficient for some reason...
