Design for Know-Nothings, Dilettantes, and Melancholy Interlopers – Translators, impresarios, believers, and the heartbroken—this is a talk about design outside of authorship and ownership, IP or copyright, and even outside of research and collaboration. When and where do ideas come to life? What counts as design? I talk about some of my own “not a real designer” work, but mostly I talk about the creative work of others: in marine biology, architecture, politics, education. Lots of nerdy history, folks.
