Announcing World IA Day 15 Official Sites

Theme: Digging Into the architecture part of IA

In 2013, the Information Architecture Institute seeks to facilitate a global conversation about the architecture part of IA and to focus the 2nd annual World IA Day (@WorldIADay) on generating ideas and artifacts that allow greater understanding of what we mean when we say architecture and when we say design in our research and practice.
