It's been a busy two days here in Miami so far. A few highlights so far:
Yesterday's presentations by Steve Portigal, discussing the role improv can have in improving communications, trust and ideation was great. To get some more insights you can check his interview with Chris Miller on the same topic.
Tad Toulis talked about cut and paste creativity and ubiquitous high fidelity in a great talk about orchestrating value and the changing nature of the design practice. Take-away sound bite - Flickr ethnographics. This talk is a follow up (sort of?) to his previous talk on the concept of ugly.
Today Mike and Maaike reviewed their simple yet controversial premise about the End of Driving. The comments in the room were as polarized as they are online!
Two days of portfolio reviews is not enough. We had to kick them out of the room each time to stop everyone from talking to each other.
