Book Description

All web sites have an architecture, whether you design one or not-just as every building has an architecture, from the lowly shanty by the railroad track to Chicago's tallest skyscraper. Unfortunately, most web sites are shanties, not skyscrapers. Continue

All web sites have an architecture, whether you design one or not-just as every building has an architecture, from the lowly shanty by the railroad track to Chicago's tallest skyscraper. Unfortunately, most web sites are shanties, not skyscrapers. Companies that hastily threw up a web site in the dot-com boom days were visited by building inspector Jakob Neilsen, who told them their site should be condemned. But now we are entering a time of rebuilding, and we've got a chance to get it right.

Information Architecture: Blueprints for the Web introduces the core concepts of information architecture: organizing web site content so that it can be found, designing web site interaction so that it's pleasant to use, and creating an interface that is easy to understand. This book will help designers, project managers, programmers, and other information architecture practitioners avoid the costly mistakes of the past by teaching the skills of information architecture swiftly and clearly. Use this book and you will pass the usability inspection with flying colors!

    閱讀工具書向來都翻很快,可惜這本書給實際有在架設網站的人閱讀比較適合。

    從畫個圓開始構思整個網站流程,將分散步驟標上三種功能類別,再開始用一般常見網站規劃工具的做法很值得參考

    因為書名取得不好,讓這本書看外表覺得它很庸俗。

    實際上閱讀後才發現這書很有料。非常適合有網站企劃需求的人收藏。

    裡面的每個章節都很適合在遇到問題時作查閱、參考。

    實用而簡單易懂,加上大量的實例 讓人了解所有資訊架構的相關議題

    我很喜歡作者組織這本書肉容的方式,可以循序漸進、也可以只挑有需要的章節閱讀。這讓我不用擔心在看後面的章節時 會不會因為對前面的內容不熟悉而無法吸收。

    第六、七章的部份,這兩章是比較接近網站動線的設計,裡面的步驟對之前只會寫網站程式、卻沒有實際將網站的大局依使用者的操作情境進行編排的我,很大地提提高了我的視野。其他的章節就真的是很純粹地將資料架構進行組織,是將海量資料為使用者進行有意義的計畫和鋪排 所會需要考慮的方向和原則。

    整本書讀完之後,我就有能力去拆解和評估其他網站在資訊架構層面的設計與 ...(continue)

    整本書讀完之後,我就有能力去拆解和評估其他網站在資訊架構層面的設計與規劃、了解網站建構者在「策略」面的考量:為什麼哪些頁面上放了什麼樣的資訊元素、目的是為了什麼。我對網站的了解和優劣評估,就不僅只在使用的「技術」新不新、好不好而已,就像軍事佈局時不再只懂得武器精不精良、而是知道我要用什麼樣的戰術去面對什麼樣的情境以及要完成的目標。我現在明白了為什麼有些網站那麼難逛、又為什麼有些網站能讓我不知不覺地在裡面待了那麼久 :-)

    一開始看覺得很好睡,但只要忍住,其實收穫很大。值得反覆閱讀
