Survey on how folks keep up with information architecture

ACIA ran a survey in 2001 to learn about which information resources and events information architects use to keep up with field. The research included magazines, journals and newsletters, discussion lists, web sites, books, conferences, meetings, and a rating of which of these resources are considered most useful. Though the survey is more than a year old, there are lots of references to useful stuff.

I have noticed that some of my postings here have made it further afield *blush* - though often without a link back to guuui for some reason :( So I thought I'd point to my own fairly erratic and pretty eclectic web log. I try to maintain a focus on stuff which relates (to a >or< extent) to hyper-related-design. The name is also a sort of signature (or sign). Oh yeah - better give credit where it's due - many of my links come via Matt[IC]

Various organisations send out e-bulletins. Here are four ;-) that I find consistently useful. They are from: Human Factors International User Interface Engineering Good Experience and Mantex (which covers the following topics: Writing, Typography, eLearning, Design, Literature, Research, Free stuff, Web design and eCommerce and has very good book reviews in subject area groupings.)

Regular quality links to infoDesign resources and events (collated from the usual suspects and further afield!)
Some sections are no longer offered (which gives a bit of a bad impression - just try to ignor it :-)
Newflashes can also by sent by email.
