Here’s some spectacularly neato design thinking stuff to take a look at. Definitely worth spending more than a few hours on, with the added bonus that it’s all in video and podcast form. If you’re anything like me, and your eyes hurt from reading so much, it’s a pleasure to be able to sit back, relax, and imbibe words of wisdom from great design thinkers the world round.
