In April of 2012 I joined Wired.com writing for the newly launched “Design” section which is focused on the emerging trends that are redefining what it means to be a designer. It’s been an awesome experience, but I’ve neglected this blog for almost a year and want to change that.
Many of the things I used to write about here are now my focus at Wired, so I’ll be reorienting the subjects I cover while keeping the big themes intact. Here’s what you can expect on this blog:
Retail and Video: The 3-D printer and related developments are going to continue to have a profound impact on the world of design. As more retail sales go to Amazon, Kickstarter, other ecommerce vendors there is going to be a lot of vacant retail space.
There will also be more “noise” and a search for new communication channels. I think the most important development to come in world of DIY is not a new type of 3-D Printer, but the next Apple TV.
Links: Many of my favorite blogs use the “link post” as a regular feature. I love getting exposed to a few links with a bit of analysis and hope you will too (We also curate a lot of these over at Wired Design in the “Elsewhere” section).
Opinions and Edge Cases: I’ll also be using this space as a collection point for random data points and percolating ideas that aren’t yet full stories.
If you liked the type of posts I wrote about 3-D printers and other fab subjects, definitely check out my stuff at Wired.com (or on my Twitter feed). It’s definitely better written and more thoroughly researched
Thanks to everyone who has read, commented and shared over the past five years and I hope you’ll stick around for the next five!
