Something is coming...something wonderful!

Something is coming...something wonderful! It's not a monolith but it is black and full of stars. It's iaslash, a new and remarkable slash-site that focuses on information architecture and all the sub-categories that fall nicely underneath. This comes as close to a one-stop-shop for IAs as any other resource available. Visit often and make your comments heard.

yeah MeFi is getting spamed lately.. it would be one thing if gsxl told us why this site is cool and why we should visit it.. convince us that IA is somthing we would like to know more about.. but it reads like an advertisement. "new and remarkable" .. "somthing wonderful" .. "visit often" .. *yawn*

It's looks like it's pro-Jacob Neilson too. Certainly cites him enough times

It's easily the nicest looking slash site out there, but I wish they did a usability overhaul on the code. Clean up the comment pages somewhat, figure out a better way to offer advanced sorting options without choking visitors with "form junk"

I don't think Greg's connected with the site, it's just an arguably (over-) enthusiastic recommendation.

Yeh I checked Gregs prior links.. a bit geeky on the design stuff... your cool Greg no harm meant.

This looks to be a good resource to add to Xblog and others. The resource page will hopefully improve. It does capture jjg and eleganthack which have great resource pages.

So do we now have to be careful not to word our posts too much like a press release lest we be tarred with the brush of evil? Sheesh.

How do you know my cool Greg meant no harm? Perhaps it was some sort of evil plot to spame metafilter with evil pro-Neilson marketing copy!

I do wish he had posted more information in his link, from the "something is coming" lead and the "iaslash" url, I was expecting gay Nielson fanfic.

briank: not to mention being covered in the feathers of inappropriateness...

This is a cool site and I am excited to have it on the Internet. I wish that I could lay claim as a creator but alas, I am not. My title may have been misleading but I have to find a way to rise above the mass of other posts on MeFi these days.
