The only thing that truly matters...

I recently came across this TED Talk and watched it several times because I was impressed with the unusual use of a discipline like design to tackle a challenge of social development. Another reason was the pragmatic approach of Emily Piloton and her partners in taking feasible steps first, in creating a positive initial experience with design and in engaging the local community. So once again, the only thing that truly matters is practice. "An ounce of practice is worth tons of preaching"...

  1. Thanks for sharing, I also found it very interesting. I can tell you as ICT Architect, involving people on design is not easy...
    Teaching to design is the max. I did it at IBM. IBM has strong methodologies for that.
    Now I try to teach design by showing the way to my customers...

    What I mostly see is that people prefer to re-play old designs rather that trying new ones...
