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

January…so far.


Ohh my sweet Jesus you guys! I just realized how awesome it is to post up and chill at a coffee shop. I’ve spent years as a barista working behind the counter and never truly knew the joys that this could bring. I’m so about this lifestyle. People watching, free wifi, and espresso. If you’re planning on doing the same keep in mind that you should buy at least one drink an hour to pay for your seat.

Some of my favorite things right now:

Batdorf & Bronson Coffee The Dancing Goats espresso is real good.
Cycloramic App Take panoramic pictures HANDSFREE!
San Diego Coffee Network Great coffee folks doing great things for the community.
Only Burger The fried green tomato burger will change your life!
Frasier The best show ever!

This is window display rules all,
