Website to Webapp - designing for workflow

Advanced Session, presented by Shane Morris.

Web applications are much easier to design than traditional web sites, right? I mean, there’s only one page in the site map! How hard could it be? Right?

As we see more and more “Rich Interactive Applications” on the web, hard questions are being asked of information architects. Just how do you create a site map for a one-screen website? Card sorting sure aint gonna help! How do we design to support a shift from users finding their way to information to users summoning functionality to them? What can the design of web applications learn from desktop applications?
