    someone gave him these slides 5 mins before he went on and he just went with it, it was actualy suposed to be a talk about fonts

  4. mediatapwater says:

    he’s a great designer, philosopher and innovator, but when it comes to fine arts he doesn’t have it.

    TYPE IN – Core King-Bryan Clemons. Those one are, one leg bottle push ups are insane!!!!

    Besides being a pretty interesting talk, he’s got a great looking presentation. Does anybody know what software he probably used?

  7. Philip Fong says:

    If you don’t know about the concept that made everything around us, John Maeda explained HOW things got together with bits and pieces of examples and the development process people don’t see because you only expect the final product.

  8. JKJonesInCode says:

    Very interesting until you realize there’s no point to anything he’s saying.

  9. kenak1000 says:

    I think he talked about the possibility of a creative leadership model as opposed to the traditional ones. “Innovation = Art + Design” I think that’s his point. i. e. Innovation involves both technology and leadership, but innovation –as I understood he said one way or another– is all about combining provocative artistic view points with what makes a good design. And that’s all that really “jazz”. A new tech shouldn’t have any value just because it’s new, just as an only old antique nothing.

    This presentation’s design is pretty interesting, too.

  11. yotipo91 says:

    This TEDTalk was all over the place, but still one of my favorites just for the ideas and content Maeda brings up

  12. Amir Kaviani says:

    did you find anywhere that the program shows up? am also looking for that.

  13. sandspar says:

    Is like the Apple 2; you need a purpose first, this is a tool to achieve that.

  14. Christie Nel says:

    I have thought about doing this… but with ants.

  15. afjhsruhddycdg says:

    Does anyone know anything about where to find this power shop product?

  16. Coloradicalman says:

    As long as it’s not in Comic Sans

  17. Liteboyiam says:

    i want an human powered computer like that! 😉

  18. afjhsruhddycdg says:

    Does anyone know where to find this application. It sounds interesting, and I’d like to try it out. Please comment if you have any information thank you.

  19. Rhett Melton says:

    He has a lot of philosophical undertones also. Lots of process philosophy (i.e. Alfred N. Whitehead-esque material).

  20. Rhett Melton says:

    What’s so bad about the lecture material? He didn’t drive home is overall point, which apparently left some of you aimless and confused, but the point is that technology (as an extension of our biological limits) is developing at an exponential rate and that it needs to be re-evaluated in order for innovation to continue at the accelerated pace (because we’re getting to repetitious). Being conditioned to appreciate ‘art’ is a big part of this new ‘paradigm’ of innovation.

    Image, sound, movies… But videogames break the cicle. You can’t have the same gameplay tru all platforms. The videogame IS the game changer.

  22. Jacob Coats says:

    Wow, a program able to monitor people and their interactions without having a kind of Minority Report level of privacy violation.
