Sorry to all of those Star Trek fans out there who were expecting something very Spockian here. I am testing out some issues with the blog and its spacing qualities.
But if you are looking for Spock, you can find him here haunting George Lucas.
Or if you are looking for a great read on civic space, design, planning, cultural life, and urban politics, check out Spacing magazine. It is a great read, partly edited by the author of the wonderful book Stroll (by Shawn Micallef) .
I stumbled upon this list of “to-dos” and related resources aimed at preparing someone to serve as a design strategist. What I like about the post is the list of resources linked and embedded within. It’s not designed (no pun intended) to be prescriptive, but as a series of things to ponder as one moves into the field. Having engaged in this before, I wished I’d considered a few of these before starting out.
I came across this post thanks to the Design Thinkers group on LinkedIn, which has shown itself to be quite active and engaged.
