As Giambattista Vico uttered centuries ago, "the truth, itself, is made." And, as humans, most of our truth is made with language. What does this mean for Information Architecture, and those who practice it? In this presentation, we will explore that question. First, we'll establish what sort of material language is, and then we'll look at how IA uses it to shape the human environment.
Andrew Hinton is an information architect at The Understanding Group, and the author of Understanding Context.
