Information architecture, or interaction design?

A very nice (and informational) interview with information architect and interaction designer Donna Maurer, at the Web Standards Group site.

Information architecture projects need:

skills in organising content — figuring out how to put it together in ways to help people find what they need.

Interaction design projects need

people with the ability to understand task flows, how a detailed task works end-to-end and how to design good interaction models.

Both information architecture and interaction design “require good interface design skills.”
