The AIfIA newsletter is published every other
week (pretty much) and features news about what's new
with AIfIA and with our partner sites.

So let's get to the news!

---- WHAT'S NEW WITH AIFIA -- http://www.aifia.org ----

-- BOXES AND ARROWS -- http://www.boxesandarrows.com/

Two good recent Boxes and Arrows articles:

1) Coloring outside the Lines
Once upon a time, we were curious and everything we
encountered was new. We were excited about discovering
new things and the world offered unlimited
possibilities. Then we went to school and were taught
to color inside the lines, that everything had its
place and the world was ordered.

2) 2nd Annual O┬╣Reilly Emerging Technology Conference
While most technology conferences are an immersion in
the nitty-gritty of the technology with little thought
about how that technology will ultimately be used, Bob
Baxley notes that the O'Reilly Emerging Technology
conference was refreshingly concerned with the uses of
new technology.

-- ARGUS CENTER FOR INFORMATION ARCHITECTURE --
http://argus-acia.com/

An oldie-but-goodie from the ACIA:

People: Karen Parolek

In one of those "Doh!" moments, I realized that it's
been a few years since I sat down with a "real live
architect" and discussed our respective fields and how
they relate. Fortunately I had the chance to run into
Karen Parolek, someone who bridges both fields (and
whom many of you met at the ASIS&T IA Summits). She has
a Bachelor of Architecture (with a minor in Graphic
Design) from the University of Notre Dame, and
specializes in information and interaction design.
