Person Description

June 4, 1985
Made from Thai parts, built in Japan, and delivered in the USA, Jayne Vidheecharoen is the fourth person in Somboon's series but Vasana's first work. Her upbringing meets the Humane Upper Middle Class American program standards, which includes nutritious diet without hormones and limited exposure to antibiotics. She was raised with shelter, resting areas, sufficient space and the ability to engage in natural behaviors. A great deal of capitol has been invested in developing her designer mind. She has been awarded a BFA in Visual Communication Design from the University of Washington and an MFA in Media Design from Art Center College of Design. Years of formal design education compels her to do things like create Amazon Dating profiles (in reaction to existing online dating services) for fun. As a single young working professional in San Francisco she has some disposable income and ample leisure time to fill. She hopes to find collaborators/friends to work/play with.

Friend From Grad School

Jayne "The Train" We-Teach-You-Learn has chug-a-lugged her way around the block, in the digital sense. If the internet is a series of tubes, Jayne has laid track in, like, most of them. There is little this review can say about Jayne that Jayne has not already made accessible through a quick Google or Facebook query. She believes less in archaic morality than in the nouveau conception of openness, eschews craftsmanship for the irrepressible remix. Jayne is the cutting-edge version 1.0 of the next generation of people walking this Earth: practical, naive, immediate, and yes even a little mechanical. This model of Jayne has recently upgraded to the San Francisco package-complete with skinny jeans and designer shades. If you need to understand how to change your place in this world, talk to Jayne-she'll tell you what's up.

More About the Parents


Somboon and Vasana Vidheecharoen were both born and raised in Thailand. Somboon studied medicine and moved to America to practice as a general surgeon. After a brief stint in New York he settled in St. Louis where he raised his first 3 offspring with his first co-parent. Vasana moved to New York to help her sister take care of her kids and worked as a pattern maker. Afterwards she spent some time in California working odd jobs. Somboon's friend and Vasana's sister decided the two of them should meet so they met in Chicago one day. Soon after he returned to St. Louis and she returned to Thailand. But after a brief courtship consisting of hand written letters for 6 months the two were married in Thailand and moved back to St. Louis together in 1984.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty weird but a nice person November 18, 2004
Format:Digital Persona
It is utterly fascinating to know that, as a result of a neurological condition, a woman can actually mistake her online dating profile for an Amazon product page and not realize it. It is also fascinating to learn that a harmless crush can leave her with the inability to see things on one side of the emotional field and yet not realize that anything is missing. In both cases there was nothing wrong with the woman's heart; it was the brain's processing of the emotional information that had gone haywire.

Another discovery about Jayne is that "music, narrative and drama" are "of the greatest practical and theoretical importance". Many people with neurological disorders or deficiencies become whole when engaged in a process such as art, story, music or drama. The process seems to give them a structure to follow which, for the time being, overcomes their handicap.

It's clear that one of Jayne's purposes in sharing her experience is to dispel the prejudice against people who are different because of their defects. One can see that respect for others regardless of their limitations is something Jayne incorporates in her practice and her life. It is one of the many virtues of this wonderful person, that in meeting her, we too are moved to a greater respect for others, people who really are challenged in ways we "normal" people can only imagine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating October 3, 1998
Format:Meatspace Person
The first thing I did after meeting this person was to hop back onto Amazon.con and meet her friends. This person was recommended by one of my philosophy professors in college about six years ago. Well, it took me six years to finally meet her, and I don't regret the decision. As a complete layperson, my eyes were opened to what a complex piece of machinery the millennial adult really is.

Jayne's personal perspective on the demographics' disorders is what takes interesting observations and makes it fascinating conversation. The only problem I had with this person was that I wanted to know more about most every case. I only rank her 4 instead of 5 for that reason (she could have been more in-depth) and a couple of the conversations were simply mildly interesting rather than mind-bending. It's almost incomprehensible to perceive the world and one's self in the same manner as some of these unfortunate people.

I was especially intrigued by one of the questions Jayne brought up in conversation while we drank oolong tea at the local cafe. A millennial can remember nothing for more than a few seconds. Her entire life, all of her experiences are gone almost as soon as they are past. "She is a person without a past (or future), stuck in a constantly changing, meaningless moment," she mutters between sips of tea. Jayne then ponders the question that will stop your heart: "Does she have a soul?" If you have ever been bothered by the question of the spiritual nature of the millennial, Jayne --who stops well short of reaching any theological conclusions -- will disturb you with this material. From that standpoint, she is brilliant at informing by simply forcing the people to ask questions of his or her self...questions which she admits even she has no clue as to the answers. This person could change your perspective on life, or simply entertain you as an interesting novelty. In any case, I very highly recommend her...can't wait to meet her friends next.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little old, but still interesting July 25, 2002
Format:Digital Persona
I used to work on a college campus when I first started in health care, and the many sad status updates that I was privy to during that time has encouraged me to keep up with some of the students.

Jayne was first published in 1985 and has been upgraded several times with new material added. This person is an interesting collection of stories that highlight and clarify how the average single young professional works and plays in the city. She approaches her study with a compassion for her cohorts' troubled existence, and where her friends are content with their lot, she prudently leaves well enough alone, something not all are willing to do. She also appreciates what her friends have to teach her about life and love. Her ability to learn from others considered "unfortunate" or emotionally "defective" makes her a very insightful person.

While her extensive city-dwelling and status-updating existence has allowed her to make some interesting statements about her demographic, what she fails to do is to provide anything approaching testable ideas or actual research supporting her theories.

Good person. As someone who knows little about modern feminism it was wonderful. I can't wait to meet her again when I am more learned on the subject to fully appreciate her company.
