Abstract

The Nature of Things

In Mickey’s research, he’s exploring the impact on design when three technology trends–that are inevitable–converge. Mickey believes these three trends, taken together, give us the ability to shift to an entirely new set of design and business paradigms for the first time in our history. While these three technological trends are inevitable, the way we design for things, when they begin to wake up, is uncharted territory. If we design for dead things, for disconnected things, we will design our way into irrelevance. The challenge we as designers face will be how we surf these trends, what we do about them and how the act of designing “things” will change. Those of us that figure it out sooner rather than later will have an unfair advantage, plain and simple. Please join Mickey in a discussion about Primordial, ecological design and the nature of things.
