I'm off to the IA Summit. This year it's in Las Vegas so it's a short trip. The past two have been in Canada and really great learning experiences for me. I've been to Las Vegas quite a few times but never to go there and learn. I hope I don't get too distracted. ;)
It promises to be a marathon of brain expanding and aha moments when you discover the differences and similarities in our approaches and our work. It's also such a great community of people thinking and sharing. We know in the IA community we need more of us. There are plenty of complex information problems out here to solve and they keep growing.
I hope to report on the things I'm learning as I go. This blog can serve as a place to come back to and see if I tried out any of the new things I learned about last year.
As for IA Summit 2006, I saw Kevin Cheng talk about his techniques and approaches using comics in design and discovery work. I brought that back to my team and my boss, Martin Hardee, created comics for the community. The Design Comics site will give you an idea of what kind of inspiration our little 'ol IA Summit can have.
Great big thank you from the community, Martin.
Las Vegas in the morning. My brain is ready to soak up the inspiration.
