A very nice, simple summary of Design 2.0 principals can be found over at nickbaum.com (graphic was pulled from his blog) Design 2.0 was one of the conferences I would have liked to attend—but Nick has done a wonderful job capturing some key thoughts on this blog and referencing others.
I especially like these points that were captured:
4 key characteristics of a successful design thinker
- the mind of a child, the ability to be curious and naive (in a good way)
- wisdom, the ability to draw on experience
- building to think, prototyping
Could not agree with these more. On a side note—this is another clear examples of how influental and essential blogs are becoming in the context of the communication and sharing of ideas. Highly recommend looking at this post as well as the links he provides.
