I think these are interesting questions, and I've appreciated the
However, there's a key element of IA that has been missing from the
media discussion. Namely, "the user". From what I know of media
production, apart from testing with audiences after something has been
produced, there's little input from "users." I've never heard of a
user-centered media process, where themes, concepts, scripts,
storyboards, etc., are somehow "tested" on users.
The thing to keep in mind about IA, and, well, any user experience
method, is that they are as rooted in product design methods as they
are in media methods. In fact, you could argue that our work is a
hybrid of the two.
