Not quite as snarky as this very Weblog is Peter Morville, writing a new column about the black art of information architecture for the outfit that seems to operate every site remotely related to the field, Argus. This week, Strange Connections takes the piss out of the promise of automated information architecture (in “Little Blue Folders”).
We touched on a similar automated process, for usability, in the dark prehistory of the NUblog, and later had a nice conversation with a potentate from WebCriteria, who more or less convinced us that fully-automated usability testing is at least semi-applicable to enormous sites. But Morville blows it to shreds, in the nicest possible way.
