The industry needs a revolution and you guys are doing your part. Congratulations for taking the lead with this initiative. Best.

Dan Sturges

John -

Great to hear you are moving forward in this new (and needed) direction. You have either found the new way, or are certainly likely to find it.

As someone working to integrate smaller personal vehicles in the U.S. transportation mix, I have long been interested in working with the public in a city to co-design (crowdsource) these smaller (low-$-produce) cars and leverage the local partnerships to create"slow streets" and other corridor / infrastructure modifications to make travel safe.

John Thackara (Doors of Perception) has been a guiding light for me in this crowdsourcing area. I remember John writing in the 1998 timeframe about how the role of the future designer will change - and become more like a "FACILITATOR" of sorts, working with large (online) groups of stakeholders / communities to shape new products (and services).

Again, Congrats!!

Excited to see such inventive thinking coming out of Boulder. The environment here certainly pushes all boundaries, and the agency model has been in desperate need of a real shove for years.

One question I do have about this new way -- it seems like your company is focused on crowdsourcing from a creative perspective which will limit the number of participants. Will you also be looking at engaging consumers of all kinds to see how they are shaping their favorite brands? Whether you use an online listening platform or set up your own social media network, will you be looking for inspiration beyond those with skills in photoshop or illustrator?

I only ask because it seems to me that we are fundamentally at a point in time when traditional approaches to business need to change. We are no longer in a push the message out world, we need to instead invite consumers in to help craft innovation.

I'm interested to learn more about how V&S will fuel this change.

Hey John,

What's in your hand in that pic?

John Winsor

there's a hint in the first post on the V&S blog.

You've never been afraid to challenge the status quo... from your perspectives on spec work, to a fresh look at product concepting, to using crowdsourcing for input on your new book. Once again, you are several steps ahead of agency mainstream. I suspect many will not yet "get" this new concept - which is the first clue you're on the right track. I'm not surprised at all to see this new venture.

Now, the suit however... that I am surprised to see. ;-)

You'll have entirely new subject matter for our conference next spring. I'll be in touch over the next few weeks.

Best of luck,

I love the concept. We have been building white labeled contest software on this principal.

What elements are you looking for in platforms?

It would be interesting to see if there are opportunities to collaborate.

this is primarily about Mexican-Americans and Mexicans and their isuses you are being disingenuous when you add embrace the different races, ethniticies and genders .) If it's all about Mexicans and their isuses, nobody else is going to be interested at all. Why should they be? If you TRULY want something that embraces everyone leave out the ethnicity in your description. Make it about civil rights for every one . Otherwise, it just sounds racist to me.
