Very interesting article on information architecture.

“But most people who do IA will never be able to focus on it exclusively. Most organizations will never have the volume of work to justify hiring a dedicated in-house IA. For the vast majority of organizations, Web work will always be a cost center, not a profit center. As a result, most teams will always be undertrained, understaffed, and constrained by budgets.”

My favorite email of the day, and it has cocktail factoids too.

“We know that you would just love to “do the right thing” for yourself and the planet if it were convenient, fun, inexpensive, and made you feel good. But until now you have lacked a good source of advice for real people leading busy lives. Easy eco-living tips are delivered in a short, sassy email each weekday.”

Video Game Violence and Kids March 7, 2008

Grand Theft Childhood is a to be released book aimed at uncovering the truth and media hype concerning violent video games and kids.

In 2004, Drs. Lawrence Kutner and Cheryl K. Olson, co-founders and directors of the Harvard Medical School Center for Mental Health and Media, began a $1.5 million study funded by the U.S. Department of Justice on the effects of video games on young teenagers. In contrast to previous research, they studied real children and families in real situations

What they found surprised, encouraged, and sometimes disturbed them.

Check the Grand Theft Childhood Website their myths/facts page is quite an interesting teaser (and a very interesting page layout for designers to get some inspiration).
