During the closing plenary of the IA Summit on Sunday, Jesse James
Garrett said that âInformation Architecture is not a profession â¦
and neither is Interaction Design â¦ we have and always will be User
Experience Designersâ. Iâm paraphrasing a little from memory (the
podcast isnât out yet) - but the gist is there.
Iâm a big believer in this viewpoint (and I chaired the IA Summit
last year!). I believe that both IA and IxDA are disciplines or
âfieldsâ - but are inseperable enough that the âjobâ is User
Experience Designer. This puts the emphasis on the end product rather
than the tools we use to achieve it.
So â¦ i'd be interested in some viewpoints on this, iâve also set
up itsjustux.org - if you agree then go there and sign the petition
and spread the word.
