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

Two good recent Boxes and Arrows articles:

1) Ten Quotable Moments: Challenges and Responses for
UI Designers
The following ten things have been said by actual
clients and represent common and very human reactions
to a new wrinkle in the process of building software:
design. By gathering these comments in one place and
sharing them widely, it becomes easier to recognize
them, so we can keep our calm and contribute to
effective software teams.

2) Solving Mobile Challenges with Psychology-driven IA
As the field of information architecture matures, we
are beginning to understand the new challenges it
raises for wireless media. This article suggests that
some of these challenges can be best addressed through
an approach called ┬│psychology-driven information
architecture,┬▓ which bases design decisions and
solutions on the psychological profile of the end user.

An oldie-but-goodie from the ACIA:

Extracting Value from Automated Classification Tools:
The Role of Manual Involvement and Controlled
Vocabularies
By Kat Hagedorn

Automated classification tools can't solve today's
large-scale web and intranet indexing challenges alone.
Neither can humans. But solutions that integrate human
expertise with software products such as Interwoven's
Metatagger and Autonomy's Categorizer can provide real
value and savings. After a brief introduction to
automated classification, this white paper discusses
the benefits and limitations of manual, automated, and
hybrid approaches. It explores the opportunities for
leveraging controlled vocabularies and thesauri to
produce more effective indexing solutions.
