Today I was listening to a keynote during #asist2014 SIG USE symposium, and the keynote speaker, J. David Johnson, mentioned that the average time people work cross-disciplinary is about 3 years. This has me thinking: since Information Architects cross studies between art, sociology, architecture, marketing, psychology, business, etc., how do they avoid burning out? Some people have been practicing IA for over 15 years. If bridging study areas is hard work, how do these people stay motivated, grow, and persevere in this challenging environment?
