You are welcome in our IA & UX community
We love this time of year, when we get to interact with you, our beloved IA and UX colleagues. We wanted to be everywhere on February 18, when thousands gathered in 58 cities around the world for World IA Day. It was a great day of learning for both the new and the experienced practitioner alike.
If you haven’t had a chance to experience the deep thinking, learning, and sharing that occurs when we gather in person, in this issue, we give you the next best thing. We’ve included links to Dan Klyn’s talk in Boston, as well as transcripts and videos of other top notch talks given on World IA Day. Grab your coffee and your notebook!
