Let’s talk information architecture

Comments Off

Right now I’m working on a website that had grown “organically” (which is a polite way we Web designers describe sites that are huge because of the random addition of content with no information structure in place). Seriously, this site makes no sense. I have just found six pages of identical content, and 65 directory… Continue Reading Let’s talk information architecture

Getting the kinks out

Imagine a nice piece of lumber — strong and dry, ready to be of service in any construction project. It’s strong, and it will be strong every day. Good ol’ reliable lumber. Now cut that lumber on an angle and add a bracing plate. It’s still strong, but it’s not as strong. Now replace the… Continue Reading Getting the kinks out

The former CEO of a company accused of importing medical devices that the U.S. government hadn’t cleared for use has been convicted of a single count of lying to federal investigators.

2012 is the year of the website redesign. After three years of conservative spending on websites, this year we’ve seen an explosion of activity. I am assuming this is because businesses have realized three things; first, Facebook is not going to replace the corporate website as a medium.

Love your data, but don’t overanalyze it

Comments Off

It happened again today: I received another tearful call from a marketing director whose boss refuses to read her marketing analysis reports. Because he won’t read them, she is sure she’ll be fired. And her strategy for keeping her job is to prove her worth through creating even more spreadsheets and numerical analysis instead of… Continue Reading Love your data, but don’t overanalyze it

Do I own these words? What are they worth?

Comments Off

When I started writing this column, I have to admit that the notion of “owning my content and selling the content as a product” was as ludicrous to my Generation X brain as the idea of Land Ownership was to Native Americans when the settlers started buying it from them. I mean, seriously, who can… Continue Reading Do I own these words? What are they worth?

My husband and I often have the same discussion while watching the NFL; he feels that we should replace all players with robots to prevent injuries. After the disastrous missed field goal in the Ravens/Patriots game last Sunday, it seems like a decent idea –a robot may have been able to make that kick.
