Polar Bear III

Lou and I are pleased to announce we've signed a contract with O'Reilly to publish a third edition of Information Architecture for the World Wide Web.

Since its original publication in 1998, the polar bear book has sold more than 100,000 copies and become established around the world as a leading text for students and practitioners.

But it's time for an upgrade, and we'd love your help. Please contribute by completing PB3 Survey #1. This is the first in a series of community surveys we're planning to ensure we include the best ideas and examples.

Also, we're hiring an editorial assistant, so if you know someone who may be interested, please send them the position description. Thanks!

What Synchronicity!

I just posted an item on the difference between the first and second editions.


That's a good evil trick. I'm glad you think that at least in some ways the polar bear got wiser and not just fatter with the second edition. I wonder if the polar bear should get thinner in the third?

I do agree that thinner would be better.
