This world wide web is a wonderful thing, we all know that. And it makes possible all sorts of things, and connections, that were denied to the majority of us just a few short years ago. But you do sometimes wonder whether some of those things offer anything that's really worthwhile having. Take, for instance, designers talking about design. It's a growing trend, it would seem.
Over here Adrian Shaugnessy talks to a range of designers from Jonathan Barnbrook to Neville Brody.
And over here Mike Dempsey talks to Royal Designers (as opposed to us commoners, obviously).
Now, I have tried. Honestly I have. But I get about 7 minutes in and I start thinking "oh, shut up talking and just get on and design something".
Maybe I ought to put them all on an iPod and take them away on holiday. (On second thoughts, I think I'll stick with Clare Balding.)
