About Dan Klyn:
Dan Klyn is co-founder of The Understanding Group (TUG), teaches information architecture at the University of Michigan School of Information and serves on the board of the IA Institute. He does IA work for clients including Herman Miller and JSTOR and his research focus is also his hero: Richard Saul Wurman.

About Dan's Talk:
Beginning in 1962 at the age of 26 and continuing to the present day, Richard Saul Wurman has been extraordinarily prolific. He’s written 83 books. He invented information architecture and the TED conference. Last month in the Wall Street Journal, Wurman's contribution to architecture and design was compared with that made by The Beatles to popular music.

Dan Klyn has spent the past five years researching RSW’s life’s work, and co-founded a company to practice what Wurman preaches. In forty-five richly-illustrated minutes, Klyn presents the results from his biographical research and shows examples of how The Understanding Group has applied Wurman's thinking to client work over the three years since its founding in 2011.

Bonus: Klyn's extensive collection of 50 years worth of objects designed by Richard Saul Wurman will be on display for all to admire (and play with).

Thank you to TUG for hosting and providing breakfast treats!

A big thanks to our coffee sponsor, REGULAR COFFEE
