The Informed Life: My Interview with Jorge Arango

The Informed Life

I’m proud to have been an interviewee for Jorge’s podcast, which just went live with the episode. Here’s the interview.

A personal note: I’ve known Jorge Arango for a long time, and I’ve always been impressed with his intelligence, erudition, and keen professionalism. When he started producing a podcast, it didn’t surprise me in the least that it’s one of the best-produced, thoroughly crafted podcasts out there. (Full text transcript! Linked references!) Jorge is also the author of the wise and excellent Living in Information, and is responsible for the transformative revision and reframing of the venerable “polar bear book,” aka Information Architecture for the Web and Beyond. (Seriously, if you haven’t read the 4th edition, at least check out Jorge’s brilliant introductory Part I [Ch 1-4], which is brand new to the book, and is one of the best explanations of IA in existence.)

I really enjoyed this conversation, and I hope my meandering answers lived up to the quality of everything else Jorge does. ❤
