Information Dynamics: IMT 586

Have you ever wondered ...

  • what causes some ideas, products, and companies to become fads that peak and die, while others have staying power?

  • why there are business cycles?

  • what causes some diseases to become epidemics and others to subside with little effect?

  • why real change often takes so long?

  • the role information plays in the answer to each of these questions?

Would you like to learn to answer these and other such questions
yourself? Are you a student at the University of Washington, or do you live within commuting distance?

Then sign up for the Information School's IMT 586, Information Dynamics I, in the Winter Quarter 2008. I look forward to seeing some of you there.

Some have asked when this course will be taught. It is scheduled for Tuesdays from 4:30 p.m. until 8:20 during the winter quarter. The UW Web site gives a bit more information. As soon as there's a course Web site, I plan to post that, too.

If you're interested in taking IMT 586 and are a Day MSIM student in the University of Washington Information School, go to to register. If you are an Executive MSIM student in the UW iSchool, go to to register. Everyone else, including non-MSIM UW students and non-matriculated students, should contact Kathy Wong ( directly.

May I enquire if UWIS, includes 'innovations in managerial practices', in the curriculum.

Is there a database on papers relating to this subject.

Shall appreciate your guidance. Thank you.

Tony, you'd have to scour the Information School Web site to answer that question. I don't know of such a database.

Thanks for stopping by.
