Peter Morville Quotes

Author Quote
Peter Morville “I guess part of what excites me about the Web, and makes me feel good about doing information architecture, is that it helps people get better at sharing information. People have used the metaphor that in creating the Internet we’re creating a central nervous system for the planet, wiring ourselves together and making the ways that we’re able to communicate and share information much more fluid. Of course, in order to feel good about that, you have to have a certain amount of optimism that if we enable people to communicate and share information better, they’ll ultimately make better decisions.”

They must become experience executives, in concept if not in name.”
