What is Information Architecture-PART 1

I bet many of you had heard about the term and that’s why you “google” the word and find my blog…hehe. Ok dudes, now I would like to tell you the real meaning of “Information Architecture”. According to Uncle Wiki, “Information Architecture is the art of expressing a model or concept of information used in activities that require explicit details of complex systems” while according to  Information Architecture Institute, ” Information Architecture is the art and science of organizing and labeling websites, intranets, online communities and software to support usability”. So, which one is more accurate? Actually, both of it are true and have the same meaning. For me, I imagine that  Information architecture like the center part of football field  because that’s where the game started and ended. Don’t get what i mean?take a look of the diagram below which show you the roles of an Information Architect…
