Mr Latham, now working for a television news program, demanded to know why Ms Gillard was complaining about his new job instead of having a dig at Mr Rudd whom he accused of undermining her bid to maintain power. It was another awkward moment for the Prime Minister who spent the morning trying to present a united front at a carefully staged event with another former Labor leader and the man she dumped, Kevin Rudd.

  14. 14. Website : http://www.webdesignerdepot.com/2010/05/architecture-vs-web-design/ An interesting comparison between architecture and web design . It pinpoints the importance of pre-construction planning for both architecture and web design . For the news website , it is important to provide a clear structure about “what” , “when” , “where” ,”who” and “how” , architects have to arrange the relationship between different news and enable the reader could find different news efficiently . It requires a lot of pre-construction planning and modification . http://www.steptwo.com.au/papers/kmc_whatisinfoarch/index.html There is an interesting interpretation about how to create an effective information architecture by means of explaining the relationship between the business , content and the user .

A very worth-reading essay which provides a deep understanding to the topic . Sara Cheng JIANG
