IDEA 2006

Oct 30 2006

Paul Gould used MAYA’s work with the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh as the basis for a conference presentation primarily about using information architecture as a framework for guiding the evolution of complex information spaces, but which also turned out to be a bit of a defense about assets and environments held in common. The actual presentation at the conference included several video clips, which can’t be included along with the file below because of copyright restrictions. However, the notes section of the document includes information about where these videos can be found in whole from their original sources.
