"Museums are boring, the world is exciting." What a simple, refreshing, and true reminder. If you're looking for inspiration, don't go looking for it. Especially not on the walls of a museum. I've been a big fan of John's work for quite some time. Great post.

Tim: Mr. Bad Banana himself! Thanks for stopping by. I've been enjoying your blog a lot.

Yes, the Maeda presentation was fun and full of life. He shared a lot of himself in 70 minutes.

Sounds like you had a lot of fun meeting John. He's one smart cookie. I'm looking forward to the day we meet so I can pose with a Ball of Whacks! :)

Howdy, Roger! I think the answer to the camera manual question lies in the number of languages it's printed in.

The more worldwide the marketing, the bigger the manual gets, and the less is applicable to the individual end-user. My camera manual is printed in four langages, so only 25% is applicable to me.

But I agree - there are plenty of opportunities for simplicity everywhere we look!
