    • morville@semanticstudios.com Findability Facts • For every search on cancer.gov, there are over 100 cancer-related searches on public search engines. • Of these searches, 70% are on specific types of cancer. 7

    • morville@semanticstudios.com find·a·bil·i·ty n The quality of being locatable or navigable. The degree to which an object is easy to discover or locate. The degree to which a system or environment supports wayfinding, navigation, and retrieval. am·bi·ent adj Surrounding; encircling; enveloping (e.g., ambient air) the ability to find anyone or anything from anywhere at anytime 9
    • morville@semanticstudios.com Chained Libraries In the Middle Ages there were few books, and those that did exist were usually kept locked in chests or cupboards, or chained to desks in a church. “This book belongs to the monastery of St. Mary of Robert's Bridge, whosoever shall steal it, sell it or in any way alienate it from this house, or 10 mutilate it, let him be forever cursed.”

    • morville@semanticstudios.com Cisco Wireless Location Appliance “A quick glance at the screen shows exactly where the tagged wheelchairs are located...Patients wait no more than a few minutes for a wheelchair, and we save $28,000 a month by eliminating searches.”
    • morville@semanticstudios.com 20
    • morville@semanticstudios.com Reciprocal Transparency “In the information age to come, cameras and databases will sprout like poppies – or weeds – whether we like it or not. Over the long haul, we as a people must decide the following questions: Can we stand living exposed to scrutiny, our secrets laid open, if in return we get flashlights of our own that we can shine on anyone who might do us harm – even the arrogant and strong? Or is an illusion of privacy worth any price, even the cost of surrendering our own right to pierce the schemes of the powerful?” 21

    • morville@semanticstudios.com Getting Real foregoes functional specs and other transitory documentation in favor of building real screens. A functional spec is make-believe, an illusion of agreement, while an actual web page is reality. We'll never hire someone who's an information architect. It's just too overly specific. With a small team like ours, it doesn't make sense to hire people with such a narrowly defined skill-set. 37signals 33
    • morville@semanticstudios.com This is something the 'well-designed metadata' crowd has never understood -- just because it's better to have well- designed metadata along one axis does not mean that it is better along all axes, and the axis of cost, in particular, will trump any other advantage as it grows larger. And the cost of tagging large systems rigorously is crippling, so fantasies of using controlled metadata in environments like Flickr are really fantasies of users suddenly deciding to become disciples of information architecture. Clay Shirky 34
    • Yes, indeed. IA as it has lived morville@semanticstudios.com will soon die. Not because it wasn’t valuable, not because IA’s didn’t do great work, but because the Web is moving on. The problem is that IA models information, not relationships. Many of the artifacts that IAs create: site maps, navigation systems, taxonomies, are information models built on the assumption that a single way to organize things can suit all users…one IA to rule them all, so to speak. Joshua Porter 35
