Design Currency update

My blogging is all over the place – I realize that some of it isn’t quite right for the audience here, but this is also my own archive so deal with it ;).
This is what I posted last night on www.gdc.net:

Say what you will about the value of design, but one thing is clear: no two people think exactly alike when it comes to defining the value of design itself. And if the question of defining the value of design sounds like a simple one, let me assure you – you’re dead wrong. It’s not just about dollars and cents. Design Currency 2010 discussion has been going on at designweekvancouver.ca – there is information on the events, workshops, dinners, breakfasts, speakers, and information on where to stay and eat.
Interviews with speakers are being added every day in the Design Currency 2010 Interviews category.
Also I would be in some sort of trouble if I didn’t mention that I had a go at the topic myself on the Design Currency 2010 blog. Really, it is a continuation of the conversation that I had started on the GDC blog – defining the value of design – but it’s much more direct in its relation to the topic of the conference.
Finally, you really ought to treat yourself and have a look at the beautiful Design Currency 2010 video by Rethink – it is below.

AFK – Sunset Sessions: March 2010

Sunset Sessions is my new mix series that is appearing as a part of Sunset Collaboration’s weekly series of music. I will be doing a mix every three months as my contribution. Here we have some of the best music since last August, in my opinion. Starts off with downtempo, moves into breaks, progressive, and finally something which I don’t know what genre to call – doesn’t matter, it’s quite enjoyable.

Tracklisting:

  1. Faskil – It Puts Me To Sleep (Prelude mix) [Frisky Records]
  2. Oleg Zubkov – New Parallels (Fretwell remix) [Mistiquemusic]
  3. Michael Cassette – Kilimanjaro (Solarity remix) [Anjunadeep]
