An interesting meeting of 20 plus Business Week bloggers took place on Thursday and while I was in transit on a no-cell phone vehicle, my buddy Steve Baker was there and had this to say about the blogging confab.
I totally agree with Steve and John Byrne about the need to link and connect being at the heart of blogging. It?? all a conversation and the best bloggers are curators of conversations. That said, I use my blog for lots of reasons, including provocation, not connection. I use it to try an idea out, a thread of a thought and ask those in the conversation to go with it.
Right now I?? working on this thought: Is Design The New Liberal Arts? Is Design, with a capital ???the best approach to navigating our uncertain, volatile, unfocussed global life?
