Bill Moggridge Day

This event occurred last semester but I wanted to keep it in the archives of opportunities that I took in this year. Bill Moggridge is the co-founder of IDEO. One of the highlights I took away from our time with him was the idea that as designers we have looked at how we do things (affect the world) and how we feel (feedback from the world). But he encouraged us to look at the last with some intention: how do we know what we know? In design research, this becomes an important question to ask. Creating a knowledge base will be important to the ongoing work in design (whatever discipline you may fall into) as we decipher what our role will continue to be. And what do we offer? A Map or a Path?
