Work / Life / Balance
The folks at M/I/S/C Magazine, put out by Idea Couture, were kind enough to do an interview with me about my work, and in particular how I do it, to feature in the Winter 2014 issue of the magazine focused on the theme of "Balance". Robert Bolton and I discussed how the work of collecting signals in the environment and synthesizing them into something legible and functional has changed, due to technology, changes in culture, and—most critically for me—the kind of distributed cognition afforded by a post-geographic work pattern. Below is a short excerpt about this phenomenon, as it affects my (loose) approach. Oh, and gin and tonics get yet another shout out.
M/I/S/C is a great read and is available on newsstands in major cities. I encourage you to grab a copy for some great pieces on foresight, innovation design and culture.
