Six years ago, Jackie came back from a visit to her friend in Warsaw with the recipe for one of the great simple dumplings: leniwe pierogi, or lazy pierogi. They’re lazy (or the cook is) because, first, there’s no filling, just dough (a delicious cheese-based one at that); and, secondly, because they take just a few minutes to make. They can be eaten by themselves with butter and optional fried breadcrumbs, as a dessert, with butter and sugar, or even as a side dish with braised meat – not traditional, but delicious.

It has been almost a week and I am still not prepared for President Trump. I was sure that Hillary Clinton had it in the bag. I had convinced myself that Donald Trump’s arresting, but toxic, message, his misogyny and rage against the “other”, together with his general lack of discipline, organization or depth would do him in.

My wife came down to breakfast Thursday morning still in a daze over the outcome of the election. She said, poignantly, “I feel just like I did after my father died. I used to wake up each day with a sense of dread saying ‘that really didn’t happen, did it?’ But it did happen, just like this election happened, and I’m having that same sense of dread”

Humanity Just Lost, And I’m Blaming God

*As I write this I am watching, as we all are, what looks like John Podesta saying, “Don’t worry, we’re going to sneakily fix this huge mistake you idiots are making right now.” I hate to say it, but that part of me that feels like this has to be a nightmare and I’ll wake up any second, really wishes those sneaky bastards could do something, but of course that’s just the bargaining stage. If this really is legitimate then we have to just accept that we are broken, and try to find ways to fix it.

Apple was as much of a wake up call to today’s design world as Sputnik was, in the last century, to the field of space exploration – no more “business as usual.” Overnight, everyone from corporations and governments to educational institutions and NGOs scrambled to get up to speed with the more design-centric organizations such as Apple, Nike, BMW and IKEA. A favored way to ramp up was to hire consultancies like IDEO, Frog or DesignworksUSA to develop one’s design strategy. Today, a better approach may be to systematically build design and innovation capabilities into the fabric of one’s organizational culture

Comey Again?

30Oct

James Comey’s decision to inform Congress that the FBI had discovered emails on a laptop belonging to disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner that may be relevant to the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server has roiled the presidential campaign with days to go before the election. His letter provided little details about the emails, leaving the ambiguous discloser subject to interpretation and wild speculation by Trump supporters. At a Friday rally, Donald Trump hailed the news as “bigger than Watergate,” even though all of the emails may be just copies of those released earlier to the FBI.
