This link has a remarkable TED talk from Seth Godin. It’s about the fallacies of design. Seth points out, some things are broken on purpose, and others things are broken because the designers have created a product they don’t care about.
A heroic solution, a solution you really care about, alters the source rather than merely treating the symptoms. If we create things that heroically revolutionize our lives, we’ll create true works of art that develop legendary young people into legendary adults, making everything, legendary.
