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.

A Resource for All Designers?


As Cooper-Hewitt a national design organization and a part of the Smithsonian, I wonder how we can increase and diffuse knowledge for designers of all disciplines?
