Understanding Information Architecture

Christina pointed to this article in Online Journalism Review.

Most journalists who have made the jump to working online are familiar with the experience of being told by some black-clad San Francisco hipster that they're doing everything wrong. Jesse James Garrett lives in San Francisco, and admits to having a black-only wardrobe. What's more, he is an Information Architect, a member of a discipline that has a reputation for being a preserve of the hipper-than-thou. So it came as a bit of a shock when he told me that he thinks "journalism still has more to teach information architecture than information architecture has to teach journalism."
