AIfIA members will moderate and administer IA Slash.IA Slash will continue to operate as an open community for informationarchitects.

"After 2 years of running IA Slash, I have decided to step down from dailyblogging to focus on commitments in my personal life," said Michael. "Iinitially planned to retire the site, but instead offered it to AIfIA."

"IA Slash is a tremendous resource for our community and it would have beena great loss if Michael had retired the site," said Christina Wodtke, AIfIAPresident. "AIfIA and its members can continue and hopefully expand onMichael's excellent work."

"We also plan to operate IA Slash in the spirit it was created—as an opencommunity for all information architects," said Wodtke. "AIfIA members willprovide the moderation, administration and technical support for IA Slash.However, anyone with an interest in IA will be able to post and comment."

The transfer of IA Slash to AIfIA begins immediately and will take severalweeks. Costs of the transfer are expected to be minimal. Updates on thetransfer will be posted at IA Slash (
