Where I have been

Since few days I’m not as active as in recent times on this blog and here’s why.
Many have probably noticed that, lately, this blog had mostly focused its attention on economic and social issues, on design in the highest sense of the term.

As the Conceptual Age fades the Meaning Age rises

For years, we filled our brains and the mouths of the transaction between the information age – the era of computerization – and the conceptual age in the hope that this could save western economies from the ultimate nightmare of globalization of work and offshoring. We believed that thanks to our supposed greater ability to design great products, experiences and eventually statuses, we may have succeeded to the threat.

The news is that this is not happening.
