"it’s not the strangeness of the work as much as their thinking process that counts"
An interesting excerpt from the interaction12 day1 report by Johnny Holland about Antony Dunne's speech "Crafting Design Speculations":
"One audience member did ask the obvious question: where is the role for such out there work in everyday interaction design? His answer was that these students come from work and many return to the commercial field being employed by big corporations: it’s not the strangeness of the work as much as their thinking process that counts."
Why do I blog this? that's simply a good quote/answer to the question since it reflects the value of design.
