The unique power of a scenario is the power to explore the way a proposed situation feels to the users. But as you said in the last presentation, in the IoT paradigm, the technology will be mainly interacting with other technologies. So do not discount the value of metaphoric scenarios that explore anthropomorphic technologies - exploring these interactions from a humanized point of view sometimes reveals overlooked opportunities. For example if you give a technology the quality of self-doubt, then the scenario might examine how it feels it is succeeding/failing in its current interactions. This sounds silly but this self-analysis is really an look at the human experience that the technology enables.

    I'd be careful too...I might have been trying to misdirect or sabotage them.

    Seriously, I'm glad that you are keeping up with the other blogs.
