Another article on how things are actually worse than we think. From The Washington Post.

Is it just me or does every ‘new study’ about global warming make our future seem more and more bleak…

The Sagmeister

Last night I went to the Stefan Sagmeister talk here in Denver hosted by AIGA. World famous designer from Austria. The series of talks he’s giving are promoting his new book Things I Have Learned In My Life So Far.

This particular video is actually from a lecture he gave at TED, and has more to do with design and happiness, but he does go into the beginnings of this book towards the end.

Good article on the book from Creative Review here.
