If you’re still around (or connected) on Wednesday, I’ll be riffing on innovation and design on the Microsoft/IDSA Designer Spotlight series. You can call Donna at the IDSA—703 707 6000.
I’m going to be talking about the breakthroughs in innovation in 2006—they were lots of them. What’s ahead for 2007 (spore goes beyond Second Life). How media treats design (oh so hot these days). And what makes design newsworthy. To me personally and to those online and in print who write so mnuch about it.
And even if you don’t want to talk to me, check out the great people who are on the Microsoft/IDSA Designer Spotlight series and download them. These are really special folks who really know about design and innovation—Ray Riley of Nike, Larry Keeley of Doblin, head hunter RitaSue Siegel, folks from Ziba, Ecco, and HLB. And Lorraine Justice on design in China too.
