Incomplete Manifesto

without comments

I have known about Bruce Mau’s manifesto for years. In fact, at one point I printed it out, taped it all together and hung it on my door. Wonderful.

But… I was going through some old bookmarks today, and I found it, and it is still compelling.

I particularly like # 40

40. Avoid fields.
Jump fences. Disciplinary boundaries and regulatory regimes are attempts to control the wilding of creative life. They are often understandable efforts to order what are manifold, complex, evolutionary processes. Our job is to jump the fences and cross the fields.
