Design in Technology is the ‘leitmotiv’ of John Maeda. Here are the slideshares of the last Design in Tech reports and a few books he has published. A great read for designers, business people and the curious digital mind.

For people who have absolutely no time to read a book (also if it is only 100 pages), here is a Mindmap with the essence of the book:
Creative Code was the first book I have read about generative design. This was even before processing.org was invented/developed.
Is there any need for rules, principles, commandments? How can guiding principles help you to make better decisions?
I just set up a mindmap with the most inspiring 10 principles that come up my mind when designing or thinking. Some of them have more than 10. For me it is an interesting starting point while doing something, although personally Creative Companion Nr. 10 is the one for me.
It’s a map in progress, have a look, any suggestions?
