Information Theory for Information Architecture — Part 1

Factor logo 20 Jun 2023
Moving Information Across Boundaries In this two-part series, I will be borrowing from the presentation I gave at the Information Architecture Conference earlier this year: Moving Information Across Boundaries, Information Theory for Information Architecture.  This series is derived from my IAC presentation, but slightly altered to focus on the role of information architecture in addressing an organization’s foundational challenges. Part one introduces the key components of information theory: Message, Channel, and Boundaries. Part two will go deeper into the direct impact this approach can have on  large scale information rich projects. First, we need to create some context around information architecture and information theory.
