Contents: Introduction: Why blueprint a web site? --
1. Gurus and rules: In which some people like to boss you around, when we know that's my job --
2. First principles: Some rules of thumb, and some thumbing of rules --
3. Balancing acts --
Users, technology, and business: In which we discover that businesses like to make money --

6. A bricklayer's view of information architecture: In which we learn to design our architecture from the bottom up --
7. From A to C by way of B: In which we design a nice path for the user to get from one place to another, surviving such perils as shopping carts and pop-up windows --

9. Making it all up, writing it all down: In which we learn that pencils make us smarter --
10. All together now: In which we make a web site --
11. Being effective: In which we learn that there is more to getting your job done than drawing a straight line --
12. And in the end ... : In which the ghosts of information architecture past, present, and future visit --
