The purpose of World Information Architecture Day is to raise awareness of the importance of information architecture and to encourage its practice. The day also provides an opportunity for information architects to share their knowledge and experience with others.
The History of World Information Architecture Day
In 2008, the first World Information Architecture Day was held in San Francisco. The event brought together leading practitioners to discuss the state of the art in IA. Since then, WIAD has become an annual event, with events held in cities around the world.
WIAD is organized by a global team of volunteers who are passionate about information architecture. The team works throughout the year to plan and promote WIAD events.
The goal of WIAD is to raise awareness of IA and its importance in today’s world. IA is critical to the design of effective websites, applications, and other digital products. It helps people find the information they need, when they need it.
WIAD also provides an opportunity for IA practitioners to connect with each other and share ideas. The community that has grown up around WIAD is a valuable resource for anyone who wants to learn more about IA or stay up-to-date on the latest developments in the field.
