We are at the crossroads of ubiquitous computing and the Internet, a place where information blurs the boundaries between products and services to enable cross-channel, multi-platform, trans-media, user experiences. This “intertwingularity” presents an unprecedented opportunity to reimagine information architecture. Never before have we been able to employ such a powerful combination of networks, devices, and sensors to create and share knowledge. This is the complex reality that today’s website managers, user experience designers, and information architects must navigate. That’s why we need to draw maps. A map is a powerful tool for navigating and understanding physical, digital, intellectual, and social space. It helps us to look, see, imagine, and show. In this session, we’ll explore how experience maps and “IA thinking” can improve the process and product of information architecture, knowledge management, and user experience design.
