On November 1, 2014 I participated in a Semiotics Web and Information Architecture meetup at New York Public Library. Mypresentation, “Semiotics in Mapping and Emergency Response,” discusses symbology in mapping as an aspect of semiotics and presents an example of emergency response map symbology and a discussion of applications for first responders and broader uses.
Joining me were Loren Davie on Conversational Architecture – http://telltrail.me/ and CAVE language, Laureano Batista who discussed Steps Toward a Pragmatic Philosophy in the Age of Big Data and Neural Networks and Donald Gooden, the NY Chapter Leader of the OWASP Foundation, who spoke about the OWASP.org.

I have been sorting, categorizing, labeling, structuring, and visualizing all kinds of “stuff” for as long as I can remember. From spice drawers to websites, topic maps and geographic ones, the code word is EASY: easy to find, easy to understand, and easy to use. I can help with that.
