Road Trip to WIAD, Ann Arbor, Feb 15

Please consider joining the Toledo Web Professionals on a road trip to Ann Arbor on Saturday, February 15th for World Information Architecture Day. Eight of us carpooled from Toledo last year and we had a great time. The trip up and back was enjoyable, hanging out together was fun, and the conference was great.

World Information Architecture Day 2014 will take place in 24 locations and we are lucky to again have one, Ann Arbor, be very close. The exact program for Ann Arbor is not set yet, but they have announced some of the talks/speakers [updated with final list of speakers and topics]:

  • Form Follows Forces by Dan Klyn & Abby Covert
  • Architecting the Information of Society by Dan Cooney
  • Undiscovered Public Knowledge & IA by James Kalbach
  • Ubiquitous computing and the in-store shopping environment by Jonathan MorganKarl Fast
  • Boundaries of Architectural Practice by Paul Dannels
  • Lightning talks by Claire Barco, Michael Beasley, Sean Marshall, Vanessa Moore, Juan Pasquier

To join us on this road trip, RSVP at the TWP meet-up event so we know who is going and can plan the car pools. Or course, you can also attend WIAD A2 on your own.

Also, be sure to register for the event. It is free but you still need to register so they know how many people to expect.

Later, we will figure out exactly where to meet, when to leave Toledo, who is driving, and when we are coming back.

WIAD is a great event. You can watch a selection of videos from the first two years: from the Ann Arbor events and others around the world.
