Q: What’s the difference between Silicon Valley and yogurt?
A: Yogurt has culture.
Maybe this isn’t so true anymore. I did a video interview for a new blog that I predict you’ll find very interesting, It’s called Valley Zen: At the Intersection of Zen and Technology. Drue Kataoka and Bill Fenwick are the writters. Drue is a Sumi-e artist. Bill is the Fenwick in Fenwick & West, the Silicon Valley law firm. They cover technology, products, and services vis-a-vis Zen qualities like “now-nesss,” “extracting the essence,” “artistic language,” “immediacy,” and “asymmetry.” If you like Garr Reynold’s Presentation Zen and concepts like the Apple design aesthetic, white space, and a general lack of bull shiitake, you’ll like this blog, so check it out.
