SIGIA-L: Info Architects

A number of years ago I took a course at Rochester Institute of Technology
called 20th Century Information Design. During this course I discovered
what I believed to be the future, "Information Architecture". In
particular, I was captivated by thoughts by Richard Saul Wurman, Will
Burtin and many others. I have been following these visions since.
I eagerly anticipated the "Defining Information Architecture" conference in
Boston and was pleased with the information and turnout.
My main question remains unanswered however,
**If the title "Information Architect" is to endure, how can we prevent the
title from being watered down. How can the title and function be protected
from casual and trendy use?**
