We're a big fan of John Maeda because he operates at the intersection of art, technology, and design. And we think of ourselves as an inherently cross-disciplinary company. Hopefully one day we can be just like John.
If you don't know who John is, he used to be President of the Rhode Island School of Design. But now he's a Design Partner at Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield and Byers, because the venture capital community has awoken to the value and importance of design.
If you haven't already seen it, check out John's TED talk by clicking the image at the top of this post. His design lesson is great (and funny) and his "professional social network" is something that still seems mind blowing even though the talk is from 2012.
