Recommendation for agencies well versed in IA?

Hi there, 

I am looking for recommendations for medium - large agencies that are IA ninjas. Currently in infancy, I have been tasked to research some medium to large agencies who are known for their IA skills.

The ultimate goal is to put together a budget to create the following deliverables:

1.  a sitemap of the current site (which is an ecommerce/lead-gen site) that is about 15,000 pages

2, a new sitemap of the future of our site

3. Wireframes and annotations for templated content

I wrote a piece a while back that there was a "war" of sorts going on between (among?) information achitects (who frequently came out of the library science, writing, or HCI fields), usability experts, and "designers," and by that, I mean makers of pretty pictures and high concepts (frequently designers who came out of a classic design-for-print-ads field).

Become Interaction Designer with Computer Science background

Hello everybody,

I´ve found this site looking information in the internet about how to become an interaction designer or information architect. The truth is that I am not sure how to answer that question.

I have a computer science background and almost 4 years experience working as a software developer but lately I realized what I really love is this field and for me it´s being really difficult to move to it.
