No more information architecture?

I wrote a piece a while back that there was a "war" of sorts going on between (among?) information achitects (who frequently came out of the library science, writing, or HCI fields), usability experts, and "designers," and by that, I mean makers of pretty pictures and high concepts (frequently designers who came out of a classic design-for-print-ads field).

Get involved in UX research! Online Survey (available in english, german or french)


Hi Everyone,

As part of my PhD thesis, I am collecting responses to a questionnaire survey on User eXperience. More than 100 Usability/UX researchers and practitioners have already been invited to perform this exercise and most of them agree on the fact that there is still a definite need for a standardized definition of the term UX.

By sharing your views on UX, your participation in this survey will help bringing the concept of UX to maturity.
