“Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. It's not about money. It's about the people you have, how you're led, and how much you get it.” - Steve Jobs

Interview with Tom Dair, co-founder of Smart Design

I got this off of Core77–an interview with Tom Dair who is co-founder and president of Smart Design.

I particularly like this quote:

We started out as industrial designers, but it’s pretty hard to do product development unless you’re understanding an interactive experience like how somebody would be working a product or going through a series of steps with a product…

It just re-affirms for me how much interaction design is permeating the industrical design space more and more by necessity. Few Industrial Design programs link the two. SCAD’s program is a nice exception to the rule.
