I love your comment in the 3rd video "I can't imagine ....what powerpoint slides are doing to philosophy!" Nice, very nice. There is something to be said for being able to take ideas and spontaneously visualize and represent them on a whiteboard or blackboard.


Love the advices, but cannot help smiling when reading about humility on a blog, just before the interview links ^^

Keep it up!

Thanks for the tips Guy and Nancy. Love the "perfect is boring" wish my students would understand that.

Just curious, Guy - do you know any good Asian stock photography sites. My students were asking.

Regarding Repeat Design Elements, this makes sense in the physical world, too.

Years ago, I worked for a computer maker that, for a new product, outsourced, not just the manufacture, but a good portion of the design, to a Japanese vendor.

Our in-house designed products had machine screws of dozens of different lengths, diameters, head shapes, making for a complex process of tracking which screw goes where, and a lot of mistakes in reassembly.

But when the first production sample arrived from Japan and our engineers began dissecting it, they marveled at how the Japanese made every single machine screw the same, greatly simplifying inventories, the disassembly and reassembly, as well as the number of tools required for the job.

Even after 5yrs in Japan, I am impressed with what I learn about Japanese sense of style here.
