If you want to hear from a passionate designer, listen to Ross Lovegrove speak at TED2005! He’s known for incredibly beautiful forms, but in this lecture he also talks about his inspirations, directions, responses, and reasons. I love where he mentions the overtime worker not getting paid, because yes, design is one of those disciplines you desire and just do. I’ll post a few more lectures from TED that captivated my attention after the jump. Catch all the TedTalks as they are released here!
Eva Vertes on Cancer
Dan Gilbert on Happiness
David Deusch on the Fabric of Reality!
Rick Warren on Life.
Dan Dennett on religion.
Sir Ken Robinson on Creativity in Education!!! A MUST Watch!!
Al Gore on his current life and the Climate Crisis.
Hans Rosling on the World and demographical information!
I haven’t watched many of these videos but I thought the one by Dan Gilbert was quite powerful. His discussion of happiness really slaughters some of the conventional wisdom regarding what makes us happy and satisfied. Highly recommended.
