Will this technology replace 3D printing for design prototyping?

Maybe this technology could take a CADD file and quickly generate an interactive 3D model, which could be sent to colleagues over the internet!   …I think it offers a compelling sense for spatial aesthetics of a 3D product design, and then we wouldn’t have to wait for the 3D printer anymore.

the pivot: another entreprenuership lesson that’s relevant for business strategists and managers

The articulate and insightful Eric Ries, coined the term “pivot”.   In the entreprenuership community, we hear this term a lot.  The definition and examples he provides in a SXSW interview  are just very well explained and insightful.    He says “A pivot is a change in strategy without a change in vision.”

I highly recommend the other videos in the PIVOT Series as well.

A most inspiring story and definition of “design”

In his TedTalk, John Hockenberry, helps me understand why I so love design, feel passionately about it’s importance, and why I am so attracted to people–especially women–who have style…it is all about our intent.

Quotes from John’s Ted Talk:

“You’re right between horse and squirrel, John.”

“Design is, supplying intent.”

“Reality itself needed a designer.”
