Lots of good readin’ has been popping up recently, we thought we’d share a few interesting links.
Bill Moggridge, a former d.schooler who’s now the head of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York, has a new-ish blog with some fantastic stuff. The video interviews with Jimmy Wales and Neil Stevenson are worth a watch.
Grant McCracken, an anthropologist in the business world and prolific blogger, had an interesting post on the idea of “Square inch anthropology” that might be interesting for needfinders to noodle on. His whole blog is worth checking out.
@carlygeehr uncovered this amazing prototyping materials site, when you need more than popsickle sticks, tin foil, and marshmellows.
Finally, students in our d.leadership class got a crash course in teaching design thinking this weekend. On their second day of class, they taught a workshop for 100 folks who were interested in design thinking. One of the learnees, a Stanford post doc who’s working with d.school startup WorkerExpress, reflected on the experience. We’ll be hearing more from those crazy d.leadership kids soon.
If you’ve run across some good design thinking/innovation related news lately, feel free to share it in the comments section.
