To reiterate what the first steps in completing assignment 3
1. Get into teams of 3 (there can be teams of 4, but more than 2 are required - this is important as these assignments are based on a methodology that requires cooperation and the distribution of skills/tasks)
2. (re)Familiarize yourselves with the examples of locative media and the requirements of the assignment as discussed in class.
3. Answer the following questions by Monday, March 29 + post to one team members blog.
+ What new problem will you be trying to solve?
+ Why is this interesting or valuable as a problem?
+ Who is your audience?
+ What form of information will you be storing, retrieving, and why this form?
+ Answer at least four of the Formal Considerations questions above
+ Design 3 personas and scenarios based on your answers above
And don't forget to post the results of your drift/dérive exercise (map + 15 photos) by Wednesday March 17. (those of you absent on Monday will make this up on Wednesday)
And speaking of locative media, check out this article from today's NY Times
, on the current iteration of the social software I talked about in class.
