The design movement here began in Palo Alto, where Xerox created multi-disciplinary teams back in the 70s to invent cool stuff. Yup, that's the direction I'm looking for: Go discover cool stuff! If you want facts, it's where the laser printer was invented, the ethernet, graphical user interface, and object-oriented programming. Now that Ben, Brian, maybe Franklin, and maybe my brother are the only people left listening....
The companies I'm looking at are all rather elite - but help develop business strategies with respect to innovation, design, and products. They generally don't hire for specific job openings, but rather hire people who have a broad range of expertise. AND, I have an interview with one next week!
