Biography

American businesswoman, public speaker and specialist in the area of user experience design and information architecture.

Wodtke has held a series of executive roles in the tech industry, most notably leading teams who built the events platform and created an algorithm for Linkedin's newsfeed, leading a redesign of Myspace and its profile pages and leading the design and launch of the Zynga.com gaming platform.

Wodtke is a co-founder and past president of the Information Architecture Institute. As a User Experience professional, she has worked for such companies as Yahoo, Hot Studio, and New York Times to improve and develop their Web sites.

Wodtke founded Webby-nominated magazine of design thinking [Boxes and Arrows] and has been publisher continuously (as well as sometime contributor). Boxes and Arrows was the first online magazine aimed exclusively at working practitioner designers, and has inspired a host of other excellent online 'zines, from UXmatters to Johnny Holland.

Known for a blunt and humorous speaking manner, she is frequently sought out as an expert for interviews and talks on social web design, gamification, user experience, start-up management, and innovation.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes her on Twitter: "oh great, now you are going to tell me it's meaningless than I have Aquarius rising" [1], "Happy birthday to ME!" (posted 22 Oct. 2015) [2]. She states in her Twitter posts that she was born in 1966 in Iowa. A speculative place of Des Moines and speculative time of 3 PM gives Aquarius rising.
