#iln11 Day 2 – Prototyping life

Learning how to prototype (View on flickr.com

I remember my conversation with Chris McCarthy (@McCarthyChris) and Tim Rawson (@noswar) in Seattle at the last Innovation Learning Network meeting in May, 2011, and I’m paraphrasing:

Chris: We’re going to the Garfield Center for the fall in person meeting

Me: Why?

Chris: We’re going to prototype.

Me: Prototype what?

Chris: Life.

That put me in the right frame of mind to try something new, and it also relates in my mind to the passing of Steve Jobs.┬áBesides Steve’s passion for innovating, I will remember that every purchase of an Apple product meant supporting an end to discrimination, before it was popular. It still does.

Photos from the day are below.

Life is a prototype, there isn’t one way to do it. Practice as much as you can. Do it with respect for others’ diversity and promote equality wherever you can!
