  4. 4. Establish Structures
  5. 5. Ontology: Do you know what you mean when you say what you say? Taxonomy: Have you provided logical structures that bring meaning to what you present? Choreography: How is meaning affected across various channels, over time and through usage? Ontology Taxonomy Choreography Critical Components Of IA* *HT  @DanKlyn
  6. 6. Taxonomy = Structure 6
  7. 7. 7 “Perhaps the most important change from the previous menu, though, was a grouping system that categorized food items into neat culinary taxonomies: pancakes on this page, omelettes on this one, etc.”
  8. 8. 8
  9. 9. Organizing information is not the hard part 9 building true consensus on the meaning and intent of information is the hard(er) part
  10. 10. How to make a “structure” 10
  11. 11. Rules of the Road: •There is no truth, only spin: Information is crafted, and therefore fallible. •Every thing has information, even antelopes •Information can be “made of” less obvious “material” (example: African tribal drums communicate in depth messages over miles) •Information can be made out of the lack of information (example: an empty shelf where a product should be is information) 11
  12. 12. 12 What “information” do you have? • What “information” is important to your target user? • In what medium and context is “information” found today? • What “information” is important to your own objectives? • What “nouns” are you providing to users? • What “verbs” are users anticipating as relates to those “nouns”?
  13. 13. What facets do you have? • A facet is a particular aspect or feature of something. The number of facets something has the more ways it can be organized against other things. 13 • 10 Facets of a Vegetable 1.! Color 2.! Texture 3.! Taste 4.! Season Planted 5.! Season Harvested 6.! Soil Grown In 7.! Class 8.! Subclass 9.! Countries Consumed in 10.!Cost by Country
  14. 14. Will you use Ambiguous vs. Exact Classifications? 14
  15. 15. The more Ambiguous classifications, the less effective the taxonomy 15 Level of Ambiguity in Classification ClarityofTaxonomy
  16. 16. 16 Are you designing for homogenous information or heterogenous information?
  17. 17. 17
  18. 18. 18 How much information is appropriate and at what rate of discovery?
  19. 19. Structural Considerations • How much are you organizing? • How much choice can the user handle at each point in the process they are undertaking? • What are the bounds of the medium you are working in? • How does the mental model of you target user relate to the information you are dealing with? 19
