Worth Repeating: Tim Brown (@tceb62)

Video:


Designers: Think Big - Tim Brown says the design profession has a bigger role to play than just creating nifty, fashionable little objects. He calls for a shift to local, collaborative, participatory "design thinking" -- starting with the example of 19th-century design thinker Isambard Kingdom Brunel. More on TED.com...

Why I'm posting - Brown illustrates some good examples that you might not even consider design, but cases where big things happened, infrastructure-big. It's hard to imagine things that large being done today and it's no wonder that when we think of design we think of websites or logos or cell phones.
