Open Personas could be a great resource for the community

Imagine if there were a repository of personas you could go to as a starting point for your own work? This was the idea that Steve Mulder and I had a few years ago. Now we are trying to make it happen. We need your help. 

The ultimate vision is for a persona marketplace where people can submit personas they can share and browse personas that have been submitted. In the meantime, we'll post content in a blog format. We need volunteers willing to:

Personas - Dead or Alive?

Hi all,

I did a search here on IxDA for "Persona" and to my surprise nothing returned.
There has been some artcles around the website for the last bit stating that Personas are dead, or out dated.

How often do you revisit and/or update your personas?

I'm curious how often you revisit and/or update personas for long-term use.

Right now, I'm considering making a few revisions to personas that we've created a while back (that was nearly 18 months ago and we newer information we'd like to incorporate) and this got me wondering how other IXDAers approach the persona life cycle.

Do you revisit your personas periodically? If so, how often do you find this to be valuable?

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

What questions to ask for a persona interview?


I am pre paring to conduct an interview to create personas for a medical web application doctors and patients. This app is not built yet, and the feature set will be drawn from the personas -- which is why it's giving me a pause. I am used to writing interviews about usability, and always used to work with existing websites. I never created personas before, though I used them before, and I'm having difficulty coming up with questions to ask the interview candidates.

Validating personas

I'm hoping to find out if anyone else on the list has done this.

We're currently in the middle of a persona development project. One
of the leaders of the project has expressed a desire to validate the
personas. In other words, conduct a survey of our user base to find
out whether the characteristics illustrated in the personas match our
actual users.

The personas were developed based on field research with about two
dozen customers.
