Linklist according to tour lecture: »Wayshowing versus Wayfinding« and »Field Research« 15. Mar.

Wayfinding: The mental process that turns travel goals into decisions, actions and behaviors. A process of determining and following a path or route between an origin and destination. Travelers do this.

Wayshowing: The communication of information to aid travelers in getting desired goals, making decisions and taking appropriate actions. Byway providers do this.

Interaction Design:
. A technology-centered view.
. A behaviorist view.
. The Social Interaction Design view.

Persona A persona represents a cluster of users who exhibit similar behavioral patterns in their purchasing decisions, use of technology or products, customer service preferences, lifestyle choices, and the like. Behaviors, attitudes, and motivations are common to a "type" regardless of age, gender, education, and other typical demographics. In fact, personas vastly span demographics.
