Announcing the Launch of the Asilomar Institute for Information Architecture

November 4, 2002 -- Information architects from across the world today
announced the launch of the Asilomar Institute for Information Architecture
(AIfIA) < http://www.aifia.org >. The leadership of AIfIA includes expert
practitioners, teachers, and authors from organizations including Yahoo!,
AOL/TimeWarner, IBM, Lucent Technologies, MasterCard International, Wells
Fargo, Wachovia Corporation, Razorfish, Adaptive Path, the Transportation
Security Administration, the University of North Carolina and the University
of Texas.

AIfIA is a non-profit volunteer organization that serves as a resource for
organizations and individuals seeking to learn more about information
architecture and its benefits, and assists information architects who wish
to promote the field. Information architecture, the art and science of
structuring and classifying information on web sites and intranets, is a
growing field that is becoming increasingly important in the modern
information age.

"Information architecture leads to increased revenue, decreased development
costs, more effective communication and successful web sites," said
Christina Wodtke, AIfIA President and author of the book Information
Architecture: Blueprints for the Web. "AIfIA will be a resource for those
wishing to learn more about information architecture, whether they're
exploring its benefits for the first time or they're experienced
professionals sharing tricks of the trade with their peers."
