Talks about the need for Design to extend massively and gives the example of NFL players with a 4 year life and how they need to be helped in transitioning to new careers. Strikes me that this is what we are doing with Ethos Transition. Lots of connections here.

The book by an old friend that I was reviewing the first draft of over the weekend also has much to say on this whole issue. Alas, am no at liberty to talk about it, obviously. However.. the Author would like to join up with us on one of the First Wednesday sessions and does interesting work in fields of interest to us. So hopefully he can share some thoughts with us relatively soon.. <evil pigly gin>

Yep, and of course good design and architecture extend to absolutely everything that there is.  Not just in the physical.  In the virtual and informational, as well.

Thank you for this, it makes a great update / precis to this longer talk . There is a definite, growing movement towards deep design, where a close working relationship leads to collaborations, ideas and innovations that break the sadly too prevalent idea of design as just being about making things pretty. If it has an output, a product or a process, it can be designed. A real call to action.

This goes on a lot for elite athletes. GB Athletics run a scheme, started in Australia I believe, to manage this transition.

I ran across this terrific article by friend Gideon Rosenblatt today. Recommended for a proper Ruminate over in fact.

I spent last Saturday doing some Revolting in Lewes at Zu Studios, my beloved artists' colony. The entire industrial estate part of the city is under threat from cookie-cutter developers which would be a scandal because Lewes is one of the few towns that has preserved most of its character. We are horrified by this.

In fact, all of the businesses on the "Phoenix Estate", which used to be the old iron works, held an open day and invited the townspeople in to see what they do. Which was an eye opener for many of them. There were art exhibitions, theatre performances and all sorts of activities going on throughout the entire area. And luckily the weather was glorious too as a bonus.

At Zu we hosted the Phoenix Fayre during the day with lots of different creative folks selling their wares from various stalls. The Little People were well catered for with all sorts of diverting activities for them.  I was behind the bar for quite a while and it was amusing to see how serious they were at ordering some drinks or yummy raw chocolate or whatever. One enterprising 8 yo boy tried to order, with great savoir faire it must be said, a dark rum to go in his lemonade, claiming that his mother would approve. A good try. 

Geekly appetites were satisfied with a long discussion with my Live Sound-Engineer pal Sweeval Weardley [don't ask] because we had an unexpected dose of unwanted flutter echoes when we did the sound check for the party later on. Most odd - in a room so well known to him. He found the culprit, a huge video projector installed semi-hidden between an iron pillar and a side wall so moving that soon fixed it. Once that was done, his sound desk setup returned to its normal impeccable state.

I ran into a couple of friends …
