Description

This is a book for people to dip into, as they would walk in and out of the room of a dinner party and embrace their interests. Before Information Architecture, before the rules on how to organise information, before you learn grammar, before you work hard at expanding your vocabulary and go through the exercises of parallel meanings of things as using a Thesaurus and as one writes papers in class, before any learning one must understand. Understanding Understanding precedes the whole process of learning, of giving yourself permission to understand the formations of facts, data, stories, pictures, words, conversations that allow you to understand. This book could be called A Celebration of Conversation or Musings with my Mentors. It is about the fantasy of being the dumbest person in the room and being able to identify all the myriad connections of how others think, talk, explain and visualise. The following is a collection of many of the most interesting idiosyncratic paths of understanding that lead to creation. Contribution chapters by, with, or about: Jack Dangermond, Nicholas Negroponte, Walt Mossberg, Frank Gehry, Milton Glaser, Stefan Sagmeister, Jim Kwik, Ben Fry, Juan Enriquez, Peter Menzel & Faith D Aluisio, Spencer Tunick, Chris Milk, Jon Kamen, Steve Johnson, Nigel Holmes, John Grimwade, Kai Fu Lee, David Ferrucci, David Kelley, Alberto Cairo, Richard Benson, Lara Stein, Geoffrey West, David Gallo and Billy Lange.
