Adaptive Path is pretty much THE company when it comes to Information Architecture (IA). As I’ve been settling into my new job, I’ve been reading more technology-centric stuff. The CEO of Adaptive Path wrote an extremely inspiring (and validating) essay on the future of the Internet.
For five years weâ€™ve been working to refine what we know, and rest a
bit after the madness of the nineties. And now weâ€™re ready to dive in
again â€” wiser, perhaps, but no less captivated by invention than we
were ten years ago. Sure, everyone is excited by Google Satellite Maps and Yahooâ€™s acquisition of Flickr, but it goes beyond that.
Catching up and getting back in the game is really exciting. Since I left my last job and consulted for the past year doing Mac stuff, I had a lot of time to think about the future of the Internet and I couldn’t agree more with what Ms. Fraser had to say. These are inspirational times. People that were burned out after the late 90s are starting to appear again. It’s all a big ripple effect and it feels great to be involved again.
