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 http://youtu.be/lGOTwFvkfhU . 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.

His passion is self-evident. Good catch Rob. And yes I saw you posting on G+: good man! The network of networks effect is so relevant.

Information Age exhibition

Posted by Peter Feltham on October 27, 2014 at 13:17 0 Comments

I'm off this afternoon to a recording being made by the BBC's Click! team at the Science Museum, one of my favourite museums in London. And I like Spencer Kelly and Bill Thompson too so it will be good to see them again.
Here's a page describing a little bit of the current exhibition

A New Business? :- Ethos Academe

Posted by Hugh Glaser on October 14, 2014 at 16:14 7 Comments

I've been puzzling for a while as to the relationship of Ethos and Academics (or rather people who work in Universities).

Usually the way in which academics get involved in outside activities is very project-driven and focussed, looking to see what and how specific knowledge and skills the academic might have can be applied to the external business.

But what if academics might be involved as Academics?

That is, what would be the vehicle for Ethos to provide an Ethos environment for people to undertake teaching, scholarship and research?

Would it look like MOOCs + TeamArmy?

I'm working on a paper around this, but does anyone have any views?
