Join Me For 'Beyond Findability' the IA Summit 09 Workshop

February 23, 2009 05:40 AM | Posted in: Information Architecture , User Experience (UX)

If you're keen to help shape the way that the user experiences of the future are conceived and defined, join Andrew Hinton, Matthew Milan, Livia Labate, and yours truly in a full-day workshop / seminar titled "Beyond Findability: Reframing IA Practice & Strategy for Turbulent Times" at the 2009 IA Summit in Memphis.

We've got a lot of great material to share - and shape - on where this new[ish] discipline is headed, from four complementary but distinct professional perspectives (digital agency, in-house services group, management, design consultancy), shared by leading practitioners.

Here's a quick description:

"Changes are happening fast in technology, the economy, and even the various User Experience professions. In the midst of such turbulence, conventional Information Architecture can have trouble seeming fully relevant. Some may see it as a commodity, or a narrow specialty that has little to do with the game-changing emergence of social media, ubiquitous & mobile computing, and the rest.

This full-day workshop will address such concerns with a boundary-pushing foray into IA craft and strategy. We'll show how core IA skills are more relevant and strategically important than ever, and we'll explore how we can extend IA to its full potential in 21st century UX design."

Just thought you might be interested in a namesake here in Arizona. Since I am an old retired guy I may not follow your work but thought making the contact could be cool.
