What the heck’s Information Architecture?


My Graduate Student girlfriend is always registering us for events (she’s a data viz junkie). Last time it was TEDx Rainier and now it’s World IA Day Seattle. IA stands for Information Architecture. It was my first time hearing the term too. Wiki provides five¬†definitions for IA, my favorite is #3; “An emerging community of practice focused on bringing principles of design and architecture to the digital landscape”. I’m a year into my role as Social Media & Community Coordinator¬† at Espresso Parts and if there is one thing I have learned it’s that there are always things to learn! So what I have no idea what IA is! I’m super stoked to learn about it! I’m also super stoked to meet new people and share knowledge. If you’re attending World IA Day in Seattle hit me up with your Twitter handle in the comments field!¬†#WIADsea15
