My aunt saved an article from the WSJ for me that I just now read, over a month later. It was the cover story of the Weekend Journal section, and on it in ballpoint pen she wrote, "Karen wonderful story," and underlined her note twice. I liked that.
The article is about how the bankruptcy of GM can be explained romantically, not economically. "Fire the MBAs and hire a poet," author P.J. O'Rourke says.
I'm including it here because Scott subscribes to the WSJ and when it arrives at the office we often discuss the articles as they relate to design. This article is about the emotional associations we can have with design, and other life things that I won't try and encapsulate here.
It's a lovely story. Read it here. It's not as nice to read online as it is to read it in print, but, that's sort of part of the story too.
