I think that this post presents a very interesting point of view. He really analyzes the differences between advertising & marketing versus design & innovation. It brings to light the importance of students such as myself in the design and innovation process, and the growing trend of businesses recruiting fresh ideas from academic atmosphere's. I found it especially interesting that he brought up the MIT Media Lab, since Leo Bonanni, a grad student studying in the aforementioned lab, came and spoke to us about all of the interesting (and most certainly innovative!) projects being worked on in the lab.
