Information Architect Runs for Office

And he's got a great web site, too!


I hope nobody feels obliged to discuss his policies or platform. I'm
just noting that politics appears to be a new career path option for us.

[Iai-Members] Label Suggestions Needed

I see a lot of sites using "My" for these kinds of activities, like
"My Account," or "My AgencyName."

That said, slotting "file a claim" and "change my address" under the
same menu item seems dodgy since they're totally different kinds of
tasks with different priority levels, I would have thought.

I agree with Austin -- maybe an open card sort is called for.

Hebrew text on the Web

Happy Friday!

Does anyone on the list have experience with displaying Hebrew text
online and/or
know of any good resources to point me to? My client (www.ssrn.com)
collects, processes and electronically distributes research in the
social sciences and they will be starting up a network to offer
research written in Hebrew. I've searched online but
can't seem to find anything more recent than 2004 on this topic.

IDEA awards: Interactive Product Experiences

The IDEA awards that came out today have a category that may be of interest
to Interaction Designers

see Interactive Product Experiences


What I found interesting is that the iphone was not in this category but won
a gold award in the "communication tools" category
