World Information Architecture Day - SoCal

Reframe LA 

Get ready to take on some of the major problems facing Los Angeles and all of Southern California. Subject matter experts will join us to clarify the real issues facing our community while your task-at-hand will be to brainstorm and sketch potential solutions using the toolkit of information architecture. This high-energy, one-day workshop is a great way to learn through doing. Those new to the field and seasoned professionals will work hand-in-hand to share, iterate and sketch inspiring solutions. Facilitators will guide each table and offer support and encouragement to teams. At the end of the day we will reconvene to highlight amazing ideas that make the world a better place using Information Architecture.

    On Friday night we will have a great Keynote presenter, Lawrence Lessig, which I think you will really enjoy.

    This was a fabulous opportunity for members of the community to work together to come up with solutions to local problems. People from all disciplines really came together and worked hard against a short deadline, I know I certainly learned a lot. I will definitely attend next year's event. Thank you to all of the sponsors for making this event happen!

    Really looking forward to this weekend.

    Going to be great connecting with others and even better intel and data intake.

    Now if I can just figure out how to organize all the information into a sensible structure so I can be sure to have a location for the important content and that assures a smooth and delightful path to the data when needed.
