Keynote Talks & Voting for “Best of” Videos

February 8, 2012

Keynote Talks Announced

While the goal of World Information Architecture day is to make local connections with global impact, sharing an experience on the same day with hundreds of others across the world has it’s own appeal. One of the unifying elements of WIAD 2012 will be the three short keynote talks to debut on February 11th – presented via pre-recorded video created by Peter Morville and Lou Rosenfeld (the authors of Information Architecture for the World Wide Web), and WIAD’s Thematic Chair, Jorge Arango. We are excited to share their thoughts with you globally via video. Don’t worry if you can not make an official WIAD – these keynote talks will be posted on the official website shortly after February 11th for all to watch. We hope you enjoy them!

Up Next: Vote for the Best Video

Scholarship, lively debate, and intriguing interactions are all expected to be part of WIAD 2012. Each of the 14 locations will be taping their proceedings and sending a short video of their “Best of Show” in to be published online for all to see.

So, how can you get involved? Simple! Around Wednesday February 15th, video submissions received from the 14 official locations will be posted on the WIAD website. You will be able to watch the videos and vote for the best video produced at all of the global locations. Voting will be open for a week only, and it is open to anyone – even if you were unable to attend an official WIAD we still want to hear your voice. The winner of this vote will receive a free pass to the 2012 IA Summit, so your vote does matter!  Stay tuned for more details, and to watch the great IA centered thinking from across the globe.
