Super fun meeting at the brand new @goodeggsla hq yesterday. These guys are taking over a section of an old Hostess factory to run their operation delivering amazing locally produced foods. Gotta love that kind of transition. #fromtwinkiestofreshlyjuicedalmondmilk

Imagine if your doctor could personalize your care. IBM researchers predicts that in five years, doctors will routinely use your DNA to keep you well. Cancer could then be treated on a DNA level in both the patient and tumor, at a scale and speed never before possible. Check out the video here.

Why Designers Need to Share What We Do


Designers: in order to show non-designers the real value we can contribute, advocate for our profession in a rapidly developing and changing world, and help build a better world in which more people are creative problem solvers…
We have to articulate our profession in non-design terminology.

We have to be able to teach our profession to others.

This Disaster Housing Can Be Built in 5 Hours

A Dutch designer created this Lego-like emergency house, which is laser-cut on a CNC machine and then can snap together in as little as five hours. The house was made for Haiti, and includes a roof that can collect rainwater and filter it for clean drinking water.

Let’s Fix It: Fall 2013, GOOD Magazine’s (Re)design Issue- Joshua Neuman wrote in Design, Good Magazine and Subscribe

The (Re)design Issue tells a DIO (do-it-ourselves) design story that not only chronicles the ways in which design thinking is being deployed all over the world, but also calls you, the GOOD community, to take part in its deployment. 
That DIO story is a thread that winds itself throughout the issue. It runs through Chelsea Roff’s story about how you can redesign your well-being; it runs through our roundtable with GOOD’s first-ever Global Exchange Fellows who are redesigning the way we think about neighborhoods; you hear it in Ralph Nader’s recollections of the doomed Chevy Corvair on its 50th anniversary; you see it in Bethlehem Shoals’ essay on the championship legacy of the NBA coaching collaboration of Phil Jackson and Tex Winter, who effectively redesigned teamwork; and we hope you will take part in it as you explore our 14-page feature on half-baked solutions. 

For the designers among you, we expect you’ll notice the (Re)design Issue pushing against the boundaries of what constitutes a “design problem.” Our hope is that all of you begin thinking a little bit more like designers. We think our planet needs it.
