Ask Motorola's Design Guru Bruce Claxton Five Questions.

Posted by: Bruce Nussbaum on November 12, 2008

Over at the Innovation & Design channel, Helen Walters has launched a great feature—Ask Five Questions. She tells you, the audience, that she’s going to interview someone big in the field of innovation and design in a couple of weeks and asks you to send in the questions. On November 18, Helen talks with Bruce Claxton, senior director of design integration. So what’s on your minds?

It’s a good time to ask Bruce some questions. The Razr has plummeted and the company’s global market share is down to 8.4% from 22.4% in 2006. I’ve known Bruce for lots of years and he’s one of the best designers around.

One question from me is: how’s it going with Google’s Android Bruce?

My Q would be: "Bruce, what business does Motorola consider itself to be in (now and tomorrow): producing cellular headsets or.....?"

Bruce is not in the division that worked on the Razr. Those designers are in Chicago. Bruce directs the award winning industrial design and human factors innovation teams for Motorola's Government and Enterprise Sector. But Bruce has great stories to tell nevertheless. He is a passionate believer in the value of design and generously and inspiringly shares his knowledge.

My question for Bruce is: Within the time frame in which hand held organizer phones such as the Blackberry are made feasibly available to the middle class, which software investments are going to make the biggest impact in social networking in the way that texting has done in the past 8 years? I'm kind of curious about web features such as Digg, rssFeeds, blogging, and readers being integrated into this facet of telecommunications.
