IA is not just about structuring information, or understanding our users, but ensuring our users can access information when it is most relevant to them. By studying examples of users with limited technical capabilities, we can better understand how our information appears when and where it is most needed.
How can IA help non-profits communicate better, or be more effective or efficient towards their purpose?

The Gandhian idea of creating solutions that include the ‘weakest man’ may today be interpreted in many ways, some regressive. However, the suggestion it makes to technology is that it can be designed by and for the ‘last user’- the person society suggests would be least likely to be able to use it. Roshan would like to discuss this idea on World IA Day, and ask how it might evolve in a time of so many digital Indias
