“Hi Ana,

I’m glad to hear you like Who Is Flora! I read your blog and your
second paper – I think it is a great evaluation of the project!

It was hard to choose which postcards to use in Who Is Flora – I had a
huge stack of them. Also, the web version is distilled down from a
larger Macromedia Director project. Macromedia Director was a
precursor to Flash and was used mainly for CDs; after working on it
for a while I switched to Flash so it would be more streamlined and
accessible (and in doing so shortened the project). I’ll send over a
few screenshots of portions you haven’t seen (without the

You do a wonderful job explaining the elements: the main screens, the
“right screens,” etc. It’s a complex construction but I am pleased to
hear that you always knew where you were and what rules applied to
each step in the process. I think the most interesting thing about the
Who Is Flora? project is the structure. The fact that it builds itself
as the user reads through the story gives it a linear feel, but the
interactive elements and “right screens” keep it far from being a
linear project. It was important to me to use as much “digital space”
as I could. This project was started in 1999, so it’s almost ten years
old, and I’m glad it has stood the test of time.

Best of Luck,
Travis “
