As one of the projects underway at info-arch.org, I'm trying to do some brainstorming about a "Pragmatic IA/Experience Discussion" area.
This is not the same thing as the deliverables archive; the idea comes more from the IA cocktail hours I've been to. Basically, the most valuable resource I've gotten from the IA community are the "war stories" - real, practical, get-the-job-done discussion.
The main question that arises is: Why should this area be different from a mailing list thread?
A few of my thoughts:
This would make a great story or series of stories for Boxes and Arrows. Could you email email@example.com?Posted by christina at March 13, 2002 1:48 AM
Hopefully this will be adopted soon...a great idea. Here's a starter...I've recently been polling some within the practice as to material dealing with developing controlled vocabularies and connecting that to a metadata schema. I've been given some great direction, but almost all of it deals with the what, almost totally avoiding the how. For someone who is taking a first stab at this "deeper" degree of IA, I'm somewhat daunted. Now...where's that close knit community that's going to come to my rescue?Posted by Greg at April 15, 2002 10:52 PM
