ASSIGNMENT 9 D
Read IDEATE NETWORK PROSPECTUS: IDEATE summary March 2013 Prepare to critique, compare, contrast with other cross-disciplinary initiatives. Prepare to discuss how IDEATE NETWORK work might advance, amplify, accelerate, scale innovation in yourDXF LAB pathway.
Re the Quantified Self (QS) Movement: If you spend so much time tracking what you do and meeting with other QC-ers, do end up having no time to actually do stuff?
Re my interview with Ed Feigebaum. It is amazing in retrospect to see what revolutionary Nobel Prize thinking was going on on “The Other Side of The Cut” that we knew nothing about in our happy little Beaux Arts cocoon in the Fine Arts building. Fine Arts at that time took no part in the interdisciplinary invention that was going on elsewhere at Tech. I doubt that would be the case today. And that is one of the big changes for Design at Tech since my day. My design thinking work didn’t converge with Ed’s work until decades later in Silicon Valley.
[OPTIONAL IDEA TBD: Designers today have to balance the tension between the paradigms of the innovative designer vs. the creative designer – a Teague-like paradigm that responds to the current culture and a Bel Geddes-like paradigm that is disruptive and reinvents culture.
