Innovation, Empathy, and the Internet, part 3


Yet another example of how the Internet can help us get outside of ourselves, to see the world through the eyes of others or from a completely new point of view:  mezzoblue writes about Google Map’s new satellite imagery feature being used as tool to tell a compelling, authentic story about the devastating environmental impact of clearcutting. 

I’m beginning to believe that the emergence of design thinking in our society is somehow related to the rise of the Internet as an ubiquitous source of information, entertainment, and stimulation.  Never before have we had ready access to so much complexity.  Design thinking — with its emphasis on empathy for humans, iterative problem solving via prototyping, and an entrepreneurial mindset — is the best way I know of to work with that complexity.
