Where is IA headed?
Christine Woodtke has a cool presentation titled "Where is IA headed?" threadlinked above.
Dont panic, it's all in bite sized little chunks with big writing and pictures! - scared the crap out of me to start but I really enjoyed it :)
It takes a look at all manner of things, kind of like a guided tour of past present and future with short but specific bytes of info on SE's like Clusty and ASK and Google.
