The IA Happy Cab - Part 2

Eric and the dog

Part two of the log I kept during the 20 hour drive back from the 1st Polish IA Conference in Warsaw to Hamburg and Copenhagen on the IA Happy Cab (#iahappycab) on Saturday April 17, with Eric Reiss (ER, @elreiss), Jim Kalbach (JK, @jameskalbach) and his wife Nat (NK, @natkalbach). As much as John Cleese (http://ow.ly/1COQg), we had to beat the Cloud and get home soon, but with a slightly smaller budget.
Only problem: I could not tweet reliably so I just kind of tweeted on paper, and here's the result. Enjoy Part 2, Part 3 and the trip's conclusion coming soon.

As those of you who have been unfortunate enough to spend some time with me over a coffee or two know very well, I happen to have some interest in the education side of IA. Syllabi, courses, programmes, university seminars, that kind of things.

IA for Ubiquitous Ecologies

House on the falls at Gränna Not anyone has access to either the ACM library or any of their proxies. So here's the full paper on 'Information Architecture for Ubiquitous Ecologies' written by me and Luca Rosati and presented at the ACM Medes '09 conference in Lyon, France. Enjoy and comment. And for those of you who are on the impatient side, the manifesto is towards the end of the paper.

Bridging Media

Hunt the Coal Thief Board Game

Information is going everywhere, bleeding out of we thought was cyberspace and back into the real world: Internet access has moved into cellphones and hand-held devices; social networks are now mobile and constantly connect physically separated users producing unexpected scenarios; shopping remixes web sites, brick and mortar stores, and user-generated content in novelty ways; devices acquire uniqueness, stories, and a capability to generate meaning.

Many tasks we perform every day not only constantly require us to move between different media, but actually have us move from the digital to the physical environment and back: we talk about convergence, ubiquitous computing, media ecologies, and cross-media. What role do information architecture and user experience design play in such a scenario?
