2007 Annual Meeting
|Information Architecture 3.0|
Half Day Seminar, Sunday, Oct. 21, 2007, 8:30am-12:30pm (separate fee)
As we venture beyond Web 2.0 and the undisciplined, unbalanced quest for sexy Ajaxian interaction at the expense of usability, findability, and accessibility, how do we reconcile the timeless principles of design and organization with new transmedia models of interaction, co-creation, tagging, and user participation?
In this advanced seminar, Peter Morville draws upon stories, examples, case studies, and discussions to explore the future present of information architecture.
Participants should be familiar with basic concepts of information architecture, interaction design, and user experience.
