Designing the future

Friend of the blog, Allan Shearer, gets a big shout out from the NY Times' Dot Earth blog.
Another is that breakthroughs only come with a lot of effort and experimentation and, unavoidably, failure. Learning involves breaking. This means that a useful trait these days is the “courage to fear” — a phrase used in a recent discussion of tipping points by Allan Shearer, an architecture professor at the University of Texas, Austin, who studies how humans design the future as much as he designs structures.
Great mention in the blog of record.
