October 3-5th, 2008 Webmaster Jam Session Atlanta, GA
Finding a Place for Findability

Findability is a broad discipline that requires everyone involved in the planning and production of websites to do their part. Information architects, usability specialists, designers, developers, and everyone in between have the power to solve findability problems and help their client's message reach the intended audience.

In this session we'll have an open discussion about what we can and should be doing to develop findability strategies, and explore how we can rally the troops to think holistically about the project lifecycle in order to build more findable websites.

Findability Bliss Through Web Standards

Web standards are essential to making any project more findable for your users and accessible to search engines. With some web standards wisdom, even tricky technologies like Ajax and Flash can achieve findability nirvana.

This session will present the ideas and goals of findability, explore how it's more than SEO, and reveal practical techniques you can employ to help your audience discover your site.
