IA terminology

I am wondering what people use for terminology regarding sitemaps/interaction flows in regards to communicating deliverables to people who don't have an interaction design/information architecture background.

I always associate site maps with "content" and associate interaction flows with "application design" or "transactions".

Pogo-stick navigation


Can anyone point me to research done on the effectiveness or non-effectiveness of the "pogo-stick" model of navigation, that is, navigation that forces users to return to a central page to find all possible choices.

I do have UIE's white paper,Are the Product Lists on Your Site Reducing Sales? which addresses the issues of pogo-stick navigation with regards to online sales. I'm looking for additional research and would appreciate any references of which you might be aware.

Best Regards,
Jim Griesemer

[Possible Spam] RE: Re: "Intuitive" designs can be cumbersome

Not to sidetrack this interesting conversation, but are any of you
familiar with the system described at www.muse.com? The description is
pretty vague I think, but they seem to be describing an adaptive
(andragogical I'd call it. Does this term apply?) UI for a collaborative
music app of some kind. I guess they've shown it off in some San
Francisco clubs. Just wondering if anyone's seen it in action.
