Designing Media - Chad Hurley


I’m looking forward very much to interviewing Chad Hurley on Thursday March 24th, in one of “Bill’s Design Talks” at the Cooper-Hewitt. When I interviewed him for Designing Media, he started with a large cup of Peet’s coffee in his hand, but he spoke so fluently and continuously that I don’t think he had more than one sip of his drink during the entire interview, which lasted over an hour.

At Home from Roof to Basement


Yes, I’m starting to feel at home at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, having started work here this week. On the first day Angela Hall, who looks after everyone’s well being here, gave me a complete tour of the place.
