Martyn Dade-Robertson, Architect presentation from World IA Day 2013 Bristol.

In an age of ubiquitous and pervasive computing the notion of information architecture has shifted to involve both multi-channel and multi-device experiences. Perhaps, even more profoundly digital information which has been ‘let loose’ from the shackles of a computer screen becomes, through locative media, embedded within the places and practices of everyday life. This new era of information architecture offers new and exciting design opportunities; however, it also offers practical and ethical challenges. This talk will sketch out this future for information architecture through the concept of sentient spaces examines how Information Architects may shape experiences, not only of information but, of society and space.

A  consensual  hallucina-on  experienced  daily  by  billions  of  legi-mate  operators,  in  every  na-on,  by  children  being  taught  mathema-cal  concepts  ...a  graphical  representa-on  of  data  abstracted  from  the  banks  of  every  computer  in  the  human  system.  Unthinkable  complexity.  Lines  of  light  ranged  in  the  nonspace  of  the  mind,  clusters  and  constella-ons  of  data.  Like  city  lights  receding.      (Gibson  1984:  67)

Aristotle’s  applica-on  of  the  word  ‘topos’  to  general  paNerns  of  argument  is    the  source  of  the  name  of  his  trea-se,  ‘The  Topics’.  And  this  use  of  the  word,  along  with  the  related  use  in  rhetoric,  is  the  source  of  the  English    expression  ‘topic’  and  ‘commonplace’.  If  the  above  sugges-ons  are  correct,  these  words  will  have  come  via  Aristotle  ul-mately  from  the  system  of  place  memory.      (Sorabji  2004:  32)
