Be the next Garage and give birth to a new big idea! In a digital world, everybody can do it. http://sz.de/1.2429375
Sueddeutsche Zeitung (SZ), Germany's largest broadsheet newspaper, visited me some weeks ago and we discussed the past, present and future of Silicon Valley while cycling under the California sun across our HQ in Mountain View.

Sein Arbeitgeber Google bastelt am selbstfahrenden Auto der Zukunft, privat mag es Frederik Pferdt nostalgisch. Er sagt, ihm sei sein 66er Ford Mustang im Job sogar nützlich.

V8 bedeutet more fun per gallon - definitiv. auch der T3 beweist Stil. Könntest glatt in die hamburger Cargler-Gruppe aufgenommen werden!

Come, take a sneak peek into our lives and how we explore the California dream - everyday. Thanks to our talented friends @FreundevonFreunden for visiting us throughout the year!

Imagine your typical corporate office: a non-descript room, as bland as a saltine cracker, a sea of office workers cloistered in cubicles, an unending, fluorescent buzz from colorless lights above.

Story
Tagline
Innovation by design.
Introduction
Frederik is the Head of Innovation & Creativity Programs at Google and leads a talented team which catalyzes 10x thinking at Google by building a thriving innovation environment.
Frederik is co-founder of “The Garage” at Google and was nominated as a visiting scholar at the Center for Design Research (d.school), Stanford University and research scholar at EdLab, Columbia University. As the founder of LearningDesign:Lab, he created award-winning user-centered design experiences for various groups -- from kindergartners, to teachers, to CEOs. Currently lecturing at Stanford University, he feels lucky to see students being empowered through user-centered, prototype-driven design so that they can do cool things that matter in the world. He currently lives in Silicon Valley with his wife and two sons, and draws inspiration from his boys' childish minds and playfulness.
As a true explorer of life, Frederik rarely does things twice to keep discovering new things everyday. So far, he has done only one thing twice, which he is very proud of. Ask him about it.
