Jan 30, 2003: IA Summit Alert

My Mac's been dead for most of the past week, and thanks to a goof-up by Apple service, my Web access will continue to be limited for at least a few more days. Hence all quiet on the Bloug front.

But I can steal enough time on the wife's laptop to let you know that the 4th annual ASIS&T IA Summit is coming up soon: March 21-23, in Portland, Oregon. From the Stewart Brand keynote to the last session, it's really an incredible program; kudos to Christina Wodtke, Dick Hill, and the rest of the committee. Online registration for the Summit is now available.

Woops, almost forgot: in conjunction with the Summit, a bunch of us AIfIA folk are putting on a day-long pre-conference seminar — here's the full story. The seminar hits on many of the important issues information architects face, space is limited to 50, and the proceeds go to an excellent cause — the AIfIA. So sign up, eh?

I hope to see you in Portland!

Comment: Bob Halstead (Jan 31, 2003)

Well, this is really a comment about the Pareto Principle discussion, but that was so long ago that I was afraid you wouldn't see it if I commented in the Archive. I don't know how these are delivered to you.

I would like to propose what I am modestly calling the Halstead Principle: 80% of untested business generalizations are made up by 20% of management consultants.

As my friend Vance has commented, we should be thankful the other 80% are so unproductive.
