Building Information

July 9, 2010

I bought the first edition of Information Architecture for the World Wide Web in 1998 when it was published. My copy is even signed by one of the authors Louis Rosenfeld, although I can not remember the circumstances. We’ve ordered the most recent edition published in 2007. Things have really changed in ten years because the new edition is 300 pages longer, 504 vs. 202.

The one thought I want to remember from my copy is: “If a hierarchy is too broad and shallow, users are faced with too many options on the main menu and are unpleasantly surprised by the lack of content once they select an option.” p.38.
