This quarter, NWSPUG branches out to feature Peter Morville, information architecture guru from Ann Arbor, for the Toledo stop on his "The Architecture of Understanding" world tour.

Overview of the talk: We think we're designing software, websites, and experiences. But we're not. We are agents of change. Our systems shape belief and behavior at scale. If we hope to be better, empathy for the user isn't enough. We must also wrangle with culture, governance, methods, metrics, and the false dichotomies of mind-body and plan-build, because the things we make are reflections of how we see and sort ourselves. In this spirited tour of information architecture, organizational strategy, and systems thinking, Peter Morville draws from his new book, Intertwingled, to reveal how everything is connected from code to culture.

The event will be FREE but we expect to sell out.
