John Maeda, the President of Rhode Island School of Design and one of the most influential people in the world of design and technology, spoke at TED earlier this year about the importance of art, technology and design inform creative readers. I stumbled on to his talk, thanks to Tina Roth Eisenberg, and found it fun and educational. Of course, you can hear John speak in person at our RoadMap conference on November 5 that I am co-hosting with Katie Fehrenbacher. Our theme for the event is design in the age of connectedness.
