September 6, 2001: Odds and Ends
Where have I been of late? Well, it may seem all quiet on the Ann Arbor
front, but I'm working hard. Rabble-rousing about the future of IA on the
SIGIA-L mailing list. Prepping for my tutorials at the NN/g world tour.
Writing (yes, really) chapters for the second edition of the polar bear
book. And working on last minute details for Mary Jean's and my wedding,
which is a scant one month from today.
So back off man!
In the meantime, some miscellany:
* Remember that "berry-picking" paper by Marcia Bates that I suggested that
all IAs read? I contacted Professor Bates to see if a copy was available via
the Web. No luck, but she did point me to an abstract. Better than nada.
* Like information architecture? Like baseball? Then you're in luck. Former
Argonaut and Tvisions-naut Shawn Stemen has neatly knitted them together in
what he calls a "non-paper".
* Didn't you feel cheated when it was Natalie Boon, and not you, who won the
Gopher world tour T-shirt? Then don't let another chance pass you by: if
you're nice to Wendy Jedlicka, designer of said shirt, maybe she'll run you
a new one. Check out Wendy's site for all sorts of Gophernalia and other
