Design holds sense-making possibilities

Luke Wroblewski attended the Overlap unconference and reports in this post some interesting thoughts on design and business. Among the points made, this one rings true: the importance of design has grown in direct proportion to information overload.

I believe design holds sense-making possibilities because it corresponds with an internal data processing mechanism. To use a perfectly good word, machines ordinate information. In the process of holding it before our eyes and hearts for inspection, we, rather, coordinate it.

In response to an earlier Functioning Form post on Overlap, Niti Bhan posts a brief and interesting thought on culture crossing and design. In short, experiences matter.
