Those who covet raw creativity and draw from the arts, suggests John Maeda, former leader Rhode Island School of Design and newly minted design principle at a VC firm. He shares his views about why Design, with a capitol D, is more important than “just good technology.” Ten years from now, will our collective creativity propel us forward?
