speaking from personal experience, there is some real truth in there (mixed with hyperbole)

Yes, a lot of truth there, even if it's not by any means the whole picture.

‘Unprompted, three members of Ringo’s posse repeat to me the same line with happy awe: “Ringo Starr is a fucking Beatle.”’ 
After five decades, the happy-go-lucky sidekick in the greatest band of all time is finally getting his solo moment in the sun

‘innovation-dependent firms like Volkswagen should ideally have an engineer as CEO.’ as we say in Holland: my pants drop from reading that

let me rephrase that:
if there is a relationship between innovation—where it matters: products—and engineers, it is negative. the natural tendency of the engineer to be in love with tech progress and to be conservative towards anything outside their field does not help one bit.

VW is in the business of transport solutions, car products, driving experiences. if we were talking about Bosch, who sells tech to engineers, then it makes sense that the boss is an engineer

if developers had to work with a compiler that randomly changed 1% of their source files, they would refuse.

designers have to work in organisations, with with implementors, that try to make random changes to the designs that amount to tens of percent

OK, your rewording expresses something I can agree with :D

It' like watching when a newspaper is redesigned, with a new modular grid; the editorial staff pretty quickly lose the essential view of the design and start doing things to save time or for familiarity with the older design.

Or, why a smelly, low-ceilinged Tokyo joint beats a high-end raw fish palace

I do not know why ritual artificially-flavoured bear fruit gums burning has come into vogue, but it’s got to stop

designs interaction for creatives + solutions with a wide impact on society
Introduction
Peter Sikking is an experienced interaction architect. He unabashedly puts shipping great products at the centre of his design practice. He is known for his work for Google, Nokia, the Metapolator & GIMP open source projects, and startups.

Peter is sought out by executives who have no use for average results. With a design-led process he shapes the success they are after. He also collaborates with ambitious product makers, bridging the void between their vision and their engineers.

Peter designs interaction for creatives. With deep insight into how these masters work, he creates tools that deliver the power and freedom to create. He also designs solutions with a wide impact on society. Peter brings focus to problems of near-wicked complexity and delivers solution frameworks that allow his clients to design, execute and ship.

Peter designs for global use. Increasingly his projects have a clear, sometimes even exclusive, focus on emerging and developing countries.

Peter teaches, mentors, lectures and publishes. He enjoys working with small teams in an international setting, but also the fact that his work can be found on half a billion mobiles and creates billion‐dollar revenues.
Bragging rights
Peter lives and runs his firm in Berlin, Germany. He was born in 1969 in Hilversum, Holland and grew up in Amsterdam. His other interests include: typography, design, architecture; street photography; playing drums, producing music; designing + constructing ultra‑fi gear.
