Mapping Memory: Web Designer as Information Cartographer

“Since at least Richard Saul Wurman’s 1996 book Information Architects>, architecture has been the primary metaphor for how ‘those who build websites’ think about what we do. By adding a new metaphor to our theoretical toolboxes, we can gain a richer, more nuanced understanding of the way that we inhabit cyberspace. This enhanced apprehension of the medium should enable us to create websites that better serve our users.” (Aaron ResterA List Apart)
