Marianne Sweeny: Search, SEO and Information Architecture

Interested in how Search, Content Strategy Information Architecture, User Experience, Interaction Design can all get along? Join us for an evening with Marianne Sweeny of Portent, Inc.

There Are No Kings On The Web

There have been so many pronoun cements lately: SEO is dead. Content is King. IxDA has sabotaged IA and UX stood by and watched. One would think that there was an objective and dispassionate governing body that actually had a clue and all best interests at heart. Sadly, not so. At least, not yet. Although,  search engines continue to mount a strong offensive action to do so.

This presentation hopes to inspire us to bust out of work silos and discipline cliques and take back the Web!

6 pm room opens, please do not come before 6 :) No one will be there.
6:30 pm Registration and pizza
7 pm Announcements - last rush for pizza and seats!

    Thanks for the great talk Marianne! Fascinating and sometimes scary to hear more about how indexing and search work on the web.

    Is there any gluten free options for any of these meet ups?

      They don't have gluten free crust. I order a big Greek salad with cheese on the side.
