Hramblings: 2008 Fall Penny Stamps Design Lectures

Every year, UofM has a variety of designers, artists and engineers come in for an hour lecture on their work followed by a Q&A. Think of it as Ann Arbor's TED conference. Some are odd, others inspiring and a few are jaw dropping. Past lectures have included Arthur Ganson, Michael Braungart, and Peter Richards. This year's offerings are similarly broad and include a talk by Theo Jansen a computer programmer/roboticist whose Strandbeests have been a fixture of internet video long before Youtube. My advice is to review the list of talks and go to the one you are LEAST interested in. I suspect it will turn out to be a favorite.

I like that mindset, John...try the one you are least interested in and it will likely be the most interesting :) :)
