Case studies push IA

I'm always excited when folks in the community share case studies. After Rich Wiggins/Whitney Queensbury's presentation at the IA Summit and this published case study about BBCi Search I feel inspired to pursue my own search logs more methodically. Although my logs are more educational in nature, I think that establishing new methods of analysis could probably help push the envelope in understanding our users and help inform the IA of sites. It was also nice to see how a taxonomy paired with the best links editorial can really enhance the search experience.
