On Saturday, February 9, Bloomberg hosted the 2013 World Information
Architecture Day event in New York City, one of 15 global events organized
by the Information Architecture Institute in an effort to celebrate and
raise awareness about the practice of Information Architecture (IA). 


Several members of the Pratt-SILS community helped to make the event a
tremendous success:


Professor Craig MacDonald and students Noreen Whysel and Gretchen Nadasky
served on the NYC Production Committee and were involved in planning and
organizing the event over the last few months. Dr. MacDonald also developed
and planned the session "The State of IA Education: A Town Hall" which led
to an insightful discussion about the role of formal education in preparing
students for careers in IA.


Several Pratt-SILS students and alumni served as volunteers to ensure the
event ran smoothly: Jordan deButts, Nik Dragovic, Laura Elsner, Caroline
Gabrielli, Boni Joi Koelliker, Michelle Lee, Lars Lindahl, Houda El Mimouni,
Ngozi Okoro, Teresa Silva, Andy Steinitz, and David Winger. Many other
students and alumni were also in attendance.
