The research we did for this project was focused on faculty and their  
use of images in teaching and learning (in image heavy disciplines  
like art history and architecture).    They have the biggest need on  
our campus and thus were the initial focus of the Image tools work.   
Some would consider our primary persona, Eileen, senior.  I believe  
we even talk about her somewhat limited vision.  Although...she is  
faculty so this still doesn't cover the senior learner.

I think we have some research ahead of us to further define personas  
for the Lightbox.  I'm hoping some folks can turn their attention to  
this post-June (i.e. post the initial component, post the Sakai  
conference and post the initial ramp-up on the heuristic work).  I'd  
love to do some work toward defining our user types (which will drive  
who we talk to during research) soon.  Colin said he would be happy  
to add this as an agenda item to the Amsterdam meeting.  How many  
people will be at that meeting?  If we don't have a critical mass of  
the people thinking about users, research, design, etc, than perhaps  
we can schedule a Breeze meeting for the end of June or first of  
July?  Thoughts?
