Characteristics of Information

Mike Wesch (Information R/evolution) cleverly compares the characteristics of both digital and traditional information.  Makes the point that early Information Architecture used traditional models of categorization and how these are now outmoded. And that the onus to “harness, create, critique, organize and understand” is on all of us. Very interesting stuff.

About torgnyhylen

I'm an digital creative director working in Cape Town South Africa for Ogilvy Interactive. I've been designing in some capacity for the last 14 years, 12 of those online. I love what I do... and if there was one thing I wish I could do more of... it would be to paint. Besides movies and art, my other serious past-time is good old pen & paper role-playing games. Writing stories for friends that take years to complete and are improved beyond recogination by their participation is a real kick.

    The phrase “Information Architecture” almost put me to sleep, but I persevered long enough to watch the video and ended up quite impressed 🙂
