I have an article in the August/September 2009 issue of The Bulletin of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, called "The Information Architecture of Social Experience Design: Five Principles, Five Anti-Patterns and 96 Patterns (in Three Buckets)" (quite a mouthful, eh?).

I’d like to thank Stacy Surla, one of my colleagues on the board of the Information Architecture Institute, who saw Erin Malone and myself present an overview of the social design patterns project at the 2009 IA Summit and invited us to write an article for the Bulletin.

She gently shepherded and edited the draft and the results, I hope, present a useful taste of the depth of material in our upcoming book.
