Summit Summing

Boxes and Arrows sums up this year's IA Summit with a superbly detailed, collective trip report. This is a brilliant idea, and also a brave one -- some of the talks were controversial and the writers express opinions with just enough vigor to be interesting and just enough tact to avoid explosion.

Mark Bernstein took charge of the space and his presentation much the way a sideshow barker commands that you attend his latest show. Mark was entertaining, provocative, and at more than one point downright antagonistic .

.... When he was finished, many in the audience were stunned into silence. A few people asked some very good questions, but most folks left with a lot to think about.

Generating trip reports this good, and this detailed, is another example of what IA Summit does right.
