All I want to be…


I haven’t posted in a week. Sorry about that. I kind of went down the rabbit hole with the treehouse. It’ll be worth it eventually, I promise, but until then there’s this:

The picture above hangs over my desk at work. My wife purchased it for me as a birthday gift (thanks honey!). The haiku was written by a guy named John Maeda in 2007. The original blog post with the haiku appears to be gone but you can learn more about him here: http://www.maedastudio.com/index.php and here: http://designandventure.org/ John was President at RISD before becoming part of a venture capital firm.

All I have been able to find out about the image is here: http://makezine.com/2008/11/15/all-i-want-to-be-is-someo/
