Beginning in 1962 at the age of 26 and continuing to the present day, Richard Saul Wurman has been extraordinarily prolific. He’s written 83 books. He invented information architecture, and re-invented the conference, the travel guide, the road atlas and the yellow pages. Yet a search on Amazon.com reveals that there are no books about Mr. Wurman. And all of the books Mr. Wurman wrote are out of print.
Dan Klyn is the Jacques Cousteau of RSW’s oceanic oeuvre. A deep dive in search of lost information architecture practices yielded treasures that’re relevant to any human endeavor to make good things, and do good work. In 60 richly-illustrated minutes, Klyn presents five patterns from six years of research into fifty years of one man's way of making things be good.
I do information architecture and business management consulting at @undrstndng, teach the IA course @umsi and am writing a biography of Richard Saul Wurman. bio from Twitter
