  3. 3. The analogy between map and storytelling is strong ... the process that leads to the production of a map is the same that leads to the writing of a novel – Luigi Farrauto

  5. 5. a city works less like an electronic computer and more like the human brain – Coward & Salingaros, The Information Architecture of Cities Photo: MR McGill, Flickr
  6. 6. We are time-bound entities. So we are not objects, but processes. ... trillions of catalogable, searchable, trackable trajectories ... the microhistories of people with objects – Bruce Sterling Photo:SeanStephens,Flickr
  7. 7. Purpose of IA: saving and shaping these microhistories to improve UX

  11. 11. Places are used as wax. They bear the layers of a writing that can be effaced and yet written over again, in a constant redrafting. Places are the site of a mnemonic palimpsest – Giuliana Bruno, Public Intimacy Photo:kcryder,Flickr
  12. 12. the capacity of a system to absorb disturbance and reorganize while undergoing change so as to still retain essentially the same function, structure, identity – Walker et al.

  13. 13. Resilience the capability of a system to adapt itself to: different people different information needs and seeking strategies
