By the time he was your age…

John Maeda has just been named the new president of the Rhode Island School of Design.

I’ve only met Mr. Maeda once — unless you count childhood visits to his family’s tofu bakery in Seattle. If you are what you eat, some protein in my bones is the product of Maeda creativity.

Anyway, I’m a tremendous fan of his approach to design and life. He continues to be a role model for embracing new challenges.

About Ken Judy

I am an executive manager, software developer, father and husband trying to do more good than harm. I am an agile practitioner. I say this fully aware I say nothing. Sold as a tool to solve problems, agile is more a set of principles that encourage us to confront problems. Broad adoption of the jargon has not resulted in wide embrace of these principles. I strive to create material and human good by respecting co-workers, telling truth to employers, improving my skills, and caring for the people affected by the software I help build.
