Thanks to organizations like AIfIA and a series best-selling books, Information Architecture has become a solid profession, with standard practices, techniques and competencies. But now what? Will IA collapse into "little IA," focusing on taxonomy development, or will it continue to embrace emerging technological and societal trends in data retrieval and use to become the organizing principle for practioners of design in information spaces?
Christina Wodtke, Founder of AIfIA and Author of "Information Architecture - Blueprints for the Web" will take us through a exploration of why IA has survived the economic crash, and what's its role will be in the future.
As a principal of The Management Innovation Group, Christina helps organizations realize design as a competitive advantage, via collaborative vision creation, design coaching and expert advice. A relentless instigator, she founded Boxes and Arrows, an online magazine of design; founded the Asilomar Institute of Information Architecture; wrote the bestselling "Information Architecture: Blueprints for the Web"; and has spoken on the topic of the human experience in information spaces at conferences worldwide.
Prior to founding MIG, Christina was director of design for Yahoo! Search and Marketplace where she led design work in the revival of Search, and the reinvention of Shopping. Formerly a partner at the renowned user experience agency Carbon IQ, she has also worked with clients such as Shockwave.com, Wells Fargo, Sprite, and Houghton Mifflin, as well as nonprofits such as BraveKids.org and UrbanSchool.org.
