Speaking at World IA Day 2014 Bristol
Last year I attended World Information Architecture Day 2013 Bristol, and I’m delighted to say that I’ll be speaking at this year’s version of that event. While working on my paper for DPPI 2013, I noticed that the content analysis technique I was using was moving me toward an information architecture of the content, and was analogous to an open card sort without participants. Unlike a card sort, however, this technique can be performed by a small number of people (even just one, in a pinch) and doesn’t require a score of participants or any recruiting and screening effort. It’s probably not as good as a full card sort for an IA project, but if you don’t have the resources to do a card sort, this method can give you a good start on an IA.
I’ll say more after my talk; wouldn’t want to spoil it or dissuade people from attending. But let’s just say that this is another (and very welcome) opportunity for me to transfer knowledge from academic research to practice.
