yes i followed that thread closely, however of all the times i've reached people
to exchange documentation examples, it's hard to see actual examples
i assume this is due to company privacy :-(

Ed already sent me some of his examples, from which i still don't understand his
style thoroughly, but it is very eye opening to see how different our approaches

that only depends on us...
that's why i was careful with the message's subject line: to call your attention!
i'd also like to see more IA / UX on thelist, let's just get it rolling :)

anyway i do think that the SIGIA-L and CHI-WEB lists are the "official" list for
these matters, some days you can se very high leve conversations which are very
amazing, with all the "names" we've studied, other times it get very noisy

more IA lists:

however, i'd love to raise some of such issues on evolt too, and fill the site
category we have too
