World IA Day Recap: Speakers, Videos, and Slides

On Saturday Feb. 20, 2016, the inaugural World IA Day Pittsburgh celebrated the practice and education of one of today’s most vital disciplines — information architecture. More than 80 people participated in what was a full day of discussion, learning and networking, bringing together information architects, UX professionals, web designers, product managers, data geeks, content wranglers, polar bear enthusiasts, and taxonomists (accidental or otherwise)!
