My uncle Halim asked me yesterday what my feelings were on Michael Jackson’s death.
I said, “Uncle, you’d be hard-pressed to find a child of the Eighties who didn’t, at one point or another, try to do the Moonwalk.”
We love you, Micheal. Rest in peace.

I have just finished reading Eiji Yoshikawa’s Musashi.
I have never read a book quite like it before, so I have nothing to compare it to.
You should read it, too. But it’s over 900 pages long, so if you’re in advertising, I recommend quitting your day job, first.

I remember seeing this picture in a book in the officer’s mess at an army camp in Johor, almost 15 years ago.
It was taken by a photojournalist called Larry Burrows during the Vietnam War and published in LIFE magazine in the Sixties.
It got me wondering, again; what’s the story behind this picture? Who are the guys who are in it? Are they still alive?
It’s amazing what you can discover when you apply just a bit of creativity to a Google search.
I was checking out the price on Amazon for A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking when I impulsively decided to substitute “time” with “information architecture” and found a series of papers published by the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals, in mid-2003.
Information Architecture: designing information environments for purpose provides a snapshot of what it was like to be an information architect in that time. It also talks briefly about the history of information architecture, real issues and tips on implementation.
