thanks for the thoughts! I didn't want to call it IA since to me IA goes deeper into structure of content 🤷‍♂️

yeah I guess personal sites primary focus is showing work (talks and blogposts included). not sure what else I'd put under a namespace. as css tricks shows, it's possible to scale this really really far.

Yeah, I just feel it always starts and includes the urls. Everyone I have worked with always have a top down strategy, once they get past some ideation. Great write up though.

The other thing I was going to say was that I see two approaches, where URLs go from less specific to more specific.

And then on other sites, short URLs are more important and longer namespaces are less important.

I feel we started to migrate to the later, but started with the former.

URL use to have a larger impact on SEO, but now google and other browsers are downplaying them and relying on page content a lot more.
