Stevie, remaking the Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around video with Jimmy Fallon as Tom Petty. Basically perfect. I love that she has a sense of humor about herself.

Thoughts for a Tuesday

My amazing friend,

Erin, on the role of product design and why it’s so amazing to do it as your profession.

As a product designer, it is not your job to be the hero. It is designer’s job to understand humanity and do our best to make products and experiences that provide better solutions to people’s broken worlds and unsolved problems.

I don’t think I could have said it better.

Typically other people’s problems seem simpler, uncomplicated and easier to solve than those of one’s own society. In this context, the decontextualized hunger and homelessness in Haiti, Cambodia or Vietnam is an easy moral choice. Unlike the problems of other societies, the failing inner city schools in Chicago or the haplessness of those living on the fringes in Detroit is connected to larger political narratives. In simple terms, the lack of knowledge of other cultures makes them easier to help.

Women are willing to invest in something that is going to make them perform better, feel better, make their workout better, make their experience better.
