    I liked Dan's metaphor: An information architect decides where the "cuts" go, i.e., how to divide up the space/project in a "good" way.

    I love listening to really smart people and hearing their thought process. It's very inspiring and I loved the references to architecture.

    Insightful. The performance continuum is a profound tool/concept to handle potential disasters.
