Mohawk Paper's Maker Quarterly 09 was in the mail today. (For the uninitiated, it is a vehicle for demonstrating printing techniques on various types of paper stock.) You can get on their mailing list here:

One of my favorite resources--Kevin Kelly's Cool Tools--is featuring a Podcast this week with a heartfelt endorsement of 99Designs. I invite you to listen to the piece--Brushwood's case for crowdsourcing design begins at minute 20.

I added my comment, I hope others will chime in to agree or disagree.

We as designers can remain silent about this critical issue or begin to point to the substantive misrepresentation supporters of crowdsourcing and design "contests" are spreading.

Please don't assume other's will speak out for you. If we don't care enough to try to change minds, who will?

My own brief encounter with Mohammad Ali was in July 1972. That's me at the far right (when I had hair). This is WTTG, a Washington D.C. TV station where I worked as the designer for the 10 O'Clock News. (Just a month earlier a group of burglars had broken into the Democratic Party’s National Committee offices in the Watergate complex so the newsroom was hoppin.)

But I came in early the day Ali was scheduled to be in the building. He was a phenomenon at this point in his career and had come to the studio to be a guest on People and Povich (Maury was still a sportscaster and his future wife Connie still one of the reporters). I think this was before the taping--I remember Ali coming up to me and rapid firing a burst of just miss punches--whoa he was fast! He was on even off-camera--joking with everyone and signing autographs.

What a treat--today is the first time I've seen this photograph. It comes from Brad Huffman (the station's photographer) and those shown are, left to right, Andy Mathis, Hank Didot, The Greatest, Walt Palmer, Lloyd White, Peter Anderson, and Chuck Green. — with Andy Mathis, Hank Didot, Mohammad Ali, Walt Palmer, Lloyd White and Peter Anderson.

A personal note: I want to report the passing of someone who greatly influenced my personal and professional life. His name was Victor Kryston and he was my favorite teacher at George C. Marshall High School (circa 1969). I had the good fortune to connect back up with him a few years back--he was one-of-a-kind.

Here's how he helped me along in my life...
