Jul 12, 2006: Everyday IA Flickr Group

You might want to visit (and join) the new Flickr group called Everyday Information Architecture. The group creator, Benjamin Fischer, writes:

For a publication (part of my thesis in communication design) on how we find, collect, evaluate and share information I am searching for images of "Everyday Information Architectures". The kind of images I am researching are those of personal design solutions for organizing and structuring everyday life and environment: bookshelves, movie-collections, mind-maps, workplaces, toolboxes, garages, photoboxes, filing cabinets etc.

Damn. Just two weeks ago I got rid of the last bunch of my 500 or so music cassettes, many about 25 years old, all uniquely color-coded using RECS (the Rosenmusic Esoterica Classification System). Left them in the lunch room free for the taking, and they got snapped up in a couple hours. Bizarre. Must be a lot of retro hipsters lurking nearby...
