Anyone for Scrabble?

Another week, another Explain IA entry. After last week’s attempt at explaining information architecture using only 140 characters the temptation was there to try something a little different.

What began as little more than a series of scribbled experiments on paper eventually lead to using the game of Scrabble to help convey some of the words, tasks and deliverables that make up the discipline of information architecture.

There are many words I’d have liked to have used (content being a notable omission…) but I wanted to limit myself to the correct amount of characters available in the English language version of the game – no matter how tempting it was.
