Thank you very much for the positive feedback and the mention!

i am gonna show this to my friend, brother

Ha - thanks, good observation! I picked these categories rather arbitrarily but I guess they reveal my sub-conscious bias towards experiences. ;) I feel the same way as you, although I do think that Starck's interview is really fascinating and goes beyond just condemning design materialism. I think all designers (including experience designers) will have to ask themselves whether they will still have a job in a few years.

Tim,

Really good perspective and you are accurate in your observation of how I leveraged Stark's perspective to basically talk more about things I am interested in (I'm not as interested in designer grapefruit juicers).

But even more interesting was how you chose to classify this post:

"Brand Identity, Branded Living, Crowdsourcing, Design, Egocasting, Facebook, Fashion, Innovation, Life Caching, Multicultural Moments, Social Media, Web 2.0 | Permalink"

If find that interesting. Even more so than claiming the death of design materialism. I guess the perspective that I'm coming from is that Stark's experience is less influential and relevant to me compared to the people who are designing not objects—but experiences. From Trader Joe's to Twitter and everything in-between. Just like your categories support. :-)
