Pimpformation Architect @ IA Summit 2010

Editor's Notes

  1. couple of slides about me then we’ll look at the history of the site finally we’ll end with a couple of videos quick note #formarketingreasons -- I’m not the Pimp Information Architect (I’ve heard a few of you say that) I’m the Pimpformation Architect. Or PimpIA for short.
  2. Boring, logical slide. (boring logical side)
  3. creative side
  4. here’s what the site looks like
  5. behind the scenes
  6. last year’s Summit was my second, my first was in Miami thanks to Eric’s FatDux scholarship (so if you’re looking for someone to blame for the PimpIA...) I love you guys as we all know last year was bit of a downer
  7. after the conference, I checked out flickr, like you do :-)
  8. how can I contribute and be a part of this community?
