March 2, 2016 jvizcuna says: July 24, 2013 at 11:08 pm Excellent presentation Love, Peace? and Art! anjoLas says: July 24, 2013 at 10:54 pm And why would you assume i´m mad ? Sounds? like you have mental health problems xD PedanticNo1 says: July 24, 2013 at 10:47 pm He seems to be advocating more micomanaging. Personally,? I perform MUCH worse when I know someone is monitoring me, and may step in at any moment. I just get nervous; I need to be left alone to accomplish my best work. droppedonmyhed1 says: July 24, 2013 at 10:38 pm the ideas he speaks of and what you refer to are different. Someone stepping in and telling you exactly how to do whatever it is you are doing is micromanaging. His ideas are for leaders to develop themselves in a way to manage their business without doing this. Also, I’d? like to point out: “I need to be left alone to accomplish my best work.” This is exactly what a creative leader should be doing. 🙂 droppedonmyhed1 says: July 24, 2013 at 10:35 pm I know right? I was thinking the? same thing! I want that! Oohsuger says: July 24, 2013 at 10:16 pm Clooney and bollock? work forhim, I loved this idea, loved this talk it was great Vladd7 says: July 24, 2013 at 9:46 pm you might be right, but I enjoyed? it Doug Stewart says: July 24, 2013 at 9:37 pm The only real substance for the talk was in the last two minutes. The rest was the speaker showing off previous work. If he had gone more into about how technology and design were going to change people’s lives that would have been one thing. However, he got caught up in process. Which, for the record, is a problem common at RISD. Process is interesting? but not important. Andrew Raphael Lukasik says: July 24, 2013 at 9:21 pm I disagree with him. Art is no magic – but another? form of communication (at least). mtolives says: July 24, 2013 at 9:02 pm incoherent? deexus says: July 24, 2013 at 8:52 pm this talk is just about the presentation? of a simple software DackIsBack says: July 24, 2013 at 8:43 pm Yo’ TED, Onion? is parodying yo sheit nigguh!? Overbruce says: July 24, 2013 at 8:28 pm i try figure out why u use such lewd comments… i guess u don’t want? anyone to take u seriously… good luck with life anjoLas says: July 24, 2013 at 8:01 pm This is how people see your “first” comment -> “This comment has received too many negative votes”. Now, who needs luck in? life? xD Steven Draper says: July 24, 2013 at 7:40 pm I am delighted with a defense of Art that works. Management and? power brokers are the new black; but Art can help them and us get by. cuervotaylor says: July 24, 2013 at 7:19 pm Wow this es one of the worst TED talks I’ve ever seen. In special because? the douche with art and math degrees didn´t stop talking about how much he is an Apple cultist and consumer. Yoshihiro Ortiz says: July 24, 2013 at 7:05 pm WOW? Potato BakingXD says: July 24, 2013 at 6:44 pm Seemed digressive? a little bit to the title and I did not really get the idea or the point of those typing letters, even though they were fun indeed.

Vikas V says: July 24, 2013 at 5:34 pm that”talk nerdy to me” video and now this……I think we should be very selective? in watching TED talks…. Anh Thuy Nguyen says: July 24, 2013 at 5:04 pm one question only: Which program did he use for? his presentation??? superhamzah85 says: July 24, 2013 at 4:57 pm How do you overclock a human? computer? Cocaine? Coffee? superhamzah85 says: July 24, 2013 at 4:39 pm Only Lawrence Krauss could get something from this? talk. 655432655432 says: July 24, 2013 at 4:18 pm is amazing the amount of useless stuff this guy done,that`s why u dont mix art and? math. darkominem says: July 24, 2013 at 4:03 pm This TEDtalk definitely had SUBSTANCE, BUT there was just TOO MUCH? FLUFF and useless anecdotes (we get it, you like to experiment with things). MAEDA FAILED to clearly communicate + CONNECT his initial QUESTIONS to his proposed SOLUTION (of how we can better utilize DESIGN), leaving the viewer with a sense of “INCOMPLETION.” TL;DR » FOLLOW THE CAPS PS: Regardless, still love the man’s work. BaileysBeads says: July 24, 2013 at 3:49 pm The title of this video? is the exact average of all TEDtitles taken together. Laudnei Delgado says: July 24, 2013 at 3:42 pm who can tel me something? about this last sofware Maedas use for management? …..please help me , i had look for some like that … THANKS Jacob Coats says: July 24, 2013 at 3:42 pm Wow, a program able to monitor people and their interactions without having a kind of Minority Report level of privacy violation. ? Ivo Teixeira says: July 24, 2013 at 3:21 pm Image, sound, movies… But videogames break the cicle. You can’t have the same gameplay? tru all platforms. The videogame IS the game changer. Rhett Melton says: July 24, 2013 at 2:52 pm What’s so bad about the lecture material? He didn’t drive home is overall point, which apparently left some of you aimless and confused, but the point is that technology (as an extension of our biological limits) is developing at an? exponential rate and that it needs to be re-evaluated in order for innovation to continue at the accelerated pace (because we’re getting to repetitious). Being conditioned to appreciate ‘art’ is a big part of this new ‘paradigm’ of innovation. Rhett Melton says: July 24, 2013 at 2:42 pm He has a lot of philosophical undertones also. Lots of process philosophy? (i.e. Alfred N. Whitehead-esque material). afjhsruhddycdg says: July 24, 2013 at 2:23 pm Does anyone know where to find this application. It sounds interesting, and I’d like to try? it out. Please comment if you have any information thank you. Liteboyiam says: July 24, 2013 at 2:23 pm i want an human powered computer like that!? 😉 Coloradicalman says: July 24, 2013 at 1:59 pm As long as it’s not in? Comic Sans afjhsruhddycdg says: July 24, 2013 at 1:58 pm Does anyone know anything about? where to find this power shop product? Christie Nel says: July 24, 2013 at 1:31 pm I have thought about doing this… but with? ants. sandspar says: July 24, 2013 at 1:27 pm Is like the? Apple 2; you need a purpose first, this is a tool to achieve that. Amir Kaviani says: July 24, 2013 at 1:17 pm did? you find anywhere that the program shows up? am also looking for that. Yotipo says: July 24, 2013 at 1:08 pm This TEDTalk was all over the place, but still one of my favorites just for the? ideas and content Maeda brings up ayoama says: July 24, 2013 at 1:08 pm This? presentation’s design is pretty interesting, too. kenak1000 says: July 24, 2013 at 1:07 pm I think he talked about the possibility of a creative leadership model as opposed to the traditional ones. “Innovation = Art + Design” I think that’s his point. i. e. Innovation involves both technology and leadership, but innovation –as I understood he said one? way or another– is all about combining provocative artistic view points with what makes a good design. And that’s all that really “jazz”. A new tech shouldn’t have any value just because it’s new, just as an only old antique nothing. JKJonesInCode says: July 24, 2013 at 12:44 pm Very interesting until you realize there’s? no point to anything he’s saying. Philip Fong says: July 24, 2013 at 12:37 pm If? you don’t know about the concept that made everything around us, John Maeda explained HOW things got together with bits and pieces of examples and the development process people don’t see because you only expect the final product. imfasa says: July 24, 2013 at 12:21 pm Besides being a pretty interesting? talk, he’s got a great looking presentation. Does anybody know what software he probably used? bryanjr11 says: July 24, 2013 at 12:15 pm TYPE IN – Core King-Bryan? Clemons. Those one are, one leg bottle push ups are insane!!!! mediatapwater says: July 24, 2013 at 11:58 am he’s a great designer, philosopher and innovator, but when it comes to? fine arts he doesn’t have it. glugglug21 says: July 24, 2013 at 11:46 am someone gave him these slides 5 mins before he went on and he just? went with it, it was actualy suposed to be a talk about fonts mgu1N1n1 says: July 24, 2013 at 11:34 am you, my boy? are precisely the problem Bojan Grujic says: July 24, 2013 at 11:04 am I am sculptor from Serbia needing your support for my? work.
