a note about design

To clarify my previous post...I think that design can actually change the world.

Well-designed items or processes can beautify, enable success and, well, reduce suffering. Furniture, web, fashion, information, tool, interior, architectural and auto design (etc., etc.) can all add to or subtract from our everyday experience. Both aesthetically and practically good design is vital.

I also think it's important to poke fun at the collective snobbery that often accompanies design. So, you know, don't be a pretentious fuck.

Thanks for that last post, though; it cracked me up, and I've been sending it along to friends who like to read design mags (they bore me to tears), who also love it.
