8/14/2009: Ideas from Stanford’s

Last full morning at Chautauqua; guest preacher for the week, Tony Campolo, gets a standing o from the congregation at the 9:15 devotional. Finding this awkward, I and the old guy two pews in front of me resist, but I finally relent.

Morning lecture is by George Kembel, the director of Stanford’s “” (Institute of Design). Many useful ideas for product development, summarized by the circular EDIPT methodology: build empathy with users, define the problem (where most mistakes occur), generate ideas only at this point, prototype, test, repeat.

String quartet reading (Mozart Divertimento, Beethoven Op. 18 No. 1) in the afternoon with Mort from 06 07 08, Chris, and Sue.
