  1. this is simply brilliant …. thank you so much for sharing this! it made me 'give' a round of applause at the end of the speech, in front of my pc…amazing!!!

  2. fantástico. Vai de encontro as concepções tradicionais sobre tentar e lapidar ideias. É um processo vivo, dinâmico e enriquecedor. Não vejo a hora de tentar algo semelhante.

  3. i was confused by the word "learning" on their website– it sounded like an education project. Now i understand he means "discovery", as in "discovery of design issues." I think he should use the term "discovery", not "learning". That would be more accurate, and better communicate his concept.

  4. There seems to be an obvious flaw in this model that he didn't even address:  If you have master carpenter who can't get enough work in his community, train 10 people to be carpenters, where are these novice carpenters going to get work?  Or if you have a master mechanic who doesn't even have enough vehicles from paying clients to train more mechanics, and those novice mechanics basically have to pay to get other people's cars fixed for free, who is going to pay these novice mechanics after the class?  Will they just go out and work for free again?

  5. This reminds me of "The Marshmallow Challenge" which shows how kindergardeners often beat MBA students and CEOs on building a tall tower made with spaghetti, tape and string with a marshmallow on top.  Kids naturally do rapid prototyping. Adults want to figure it all out in their planning and then create a ta-da moment at the end, which almost never works out…
