Seven Deadly Sins of IA
(1) Sin of Abstraction ” When you go too far up, abstraction-wise, you run out of oxygen.  Sometimes smart thinkers just don’t know when to stop, and they create these absurd, all-encompassing, high-level pictures of the universe that are all good and fine, but  don’t actually mean anything at all .” - Joel Spolsky
(2) Sin of Introvercy © Joshua Porter: Home alone? The role of content aggregators
(3) Sin of Isolation http://www.flickr.com/photos/brendio/147026911/
(4) Sin of Information Overload 2000  2001  2002  2003  2004  2005  2006  2007  2008  2009 100 Exabytes 12 Exabytes All info / year  Unique info / year  All human  documents produced last  40.000 years © Stuart Park, based on Lesk, Berkeley SIMS, Landauer, EMC

ABOUTNESS FINDABILITY
We need to start with The Core
How to design for Core+Paths Offer relevant  Outward Paths  from the Core (Calls to Action that meet user, business and social needs) Design  Inward Paths  to the Core  (SEO, facets, menus, search, RSS, newsletters – any mean available) Prioritize and design  the   Core   (satisfy user goals through prioritized content and functionality)
Core, Inward and Outward Paths Core Most optimal unit of consumption Balance business and user goals
Example: Municipality Core: Services , i.e. kindergarden Frontpage Internal search Google/SEO Incoming links Newsletters Brochures RSS feeds Online application Offline application Contacts Print Forward to friend Map of kindergardens Links to kindergardens
User goals Business Goals Inward Paths   Outward Paths  Calls to action Trigger words Core elements Core content/functionality Supporting information, navigation and Outward Paths
Prioritize most important element
Provide supporting info as needed
Simplicity and infodesign for tasks
The Core can also be distributed
Good web apps have good Cores
Core Variations Core Page Multiple Cores Core Flow Core Template Long Tail Core Distributed Core
Designing Inward Paths to the Core Internal search Frontpage RSS feeds Open APIs Affiliates Newsletters Google/SEO
Outward Paths: Calls to action Add to cart Buy used Add to wish list Others who bought… You might also.., Rate this item Tag this item

Editor's Notes

  1. I have been an IA for the last 10 years, and over these years I have come to one simple insight. So this insight obiviously took me some time to arrive to – and that’s why I’m so excited to get this opportunity to share it with you guys. I have come to believe is that one small change in our thinking as IAs could possibly help all of us make better, more relevant and more valuable products. Let’s see if you agree…
