How to Make Sense of Any Mess by Abby Covert
Hey everybody. Trying to get out ahead of this one so people have time to read the book amid all the holiday happenings.
This is a book in which Abby Covert, past president of the IA Institute, attempts to apply her method of information architecture to any and all problems. On top of that, the book itself is an experiment in the IA of books. It's a fun and quick read, just about 150 pages, and should provide a lot of food for thought.
Here's a link to the book's Amazon page. If anybody sees it elsewhere for a better price let us know in the comments.
See you all there!
Unlike past meetings I'm going to strongly suggest that you read the book for this one. The author is attempting something a little out of the box here and I believe most of the discussion will revolve around whether or not she was successful.
As for attendance, I'm afraid there will be limited spots so please be considerate of others and only click that "RSVP Yes" button if you're sure you can and will attend. Please update your RSVP if you find that you can't come.
Finally, a reminder that there are three pinned discussion threads (under "Discussions" up there in the local nav) to suggest improvements to the meetings as well as books to read or locations to meet at.
