IDEO's Bill Moggridge to Lead The Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum--Wow

Posted by: Bruce Nussbaum on January 6, 2010

It looks like the co-founder of IDEO, the pioneer in interraction design (like he pioneered the discipline), the guy who designed the first laptop (in the Museum of Modern Art), the greatest person to share a walk in a gallery with, the most helpful person, the tallest designer ever (OK, after Fred Dust)—THAT guy, Bill Moggridge is going to be the next head of the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum.

I first heard about it at the wake for ID magazine in NYC last night and people are buzzing with the news this morning.

It’s a masterful choice—a real designer to head the country’s national design museum.

Here’s the NYT’s on the announcement. But I tweeted it first last night. Hah.
