Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Tom Peters and Thoughts on Design

« We Take Your Trash | Main | Fighting the Summer Doldrums »


I don't have anything meaningful to add to the conversation, but I love that description of Michelangelo 's vision so much that I needed to say so. Thanks, Valeria. :)

"...and he does so like a maestro."
yes he does.

...found several. - thanks to your lead.

@Austin - I like the play off your name in the blog, very inventive! It sounds like you don't follow the herd. The best designs are the simplest.

@Steve - what a nice way of putting it, thank you. One of my early teachers when describing the work of Michelangelo, used to say that he could feel the form inside the marble. Then he would just carve out the excess material. That is vision.

@Jens - I thought you might find several nuggets there. Tom Peters can be so incisive with his passion. He's not afraid to use exclamation points, all caps, bolds, and he does so like a maestro.
