Recap: The Future of IA Retreat

Held the first weekend in October, the Future of Information Architecture Retreat was a resounding success. About 45 people from fourcountries met at the Asilomar conference center in California andengaged in two days of workshops, conversations, and socializing. Itwas as educational as a conference but more intense, with anenvironment that allowed for more interaction among attendees.

There's already talk of holding more retreats like this, in LatinAmerica and the US East Coast. It's not hard to plan. For this event,Christina Wodtke took the initiative and selected a location. A smallcommittee then recruited speakers and planned simple logistics. TheInstitute contributed some money to defray costs through our eventsponsorship program. AIfIA members can do this, too, anywhere in theworld: it'd be great to see more retreats happen.
