Ah, the old school...

INTERVIEWER: Do you enjoy writing?

WILLIAM STYRON: I certainly don’t. I get a fine, warm feeling when I’m doing well, but that pleasure is pretty much negated by the pain of getting started each day. Let’s face it, writing is hell.

INTERVIEWER: And what time of the day do you find best for working?

STYRON: The afternoon. I like to stay up late at night and get drunk and sleep late. I wish I could break the habit but I can’t. The afternoon is the only time I have left and I try to use it to the best advantage, with a hangover.

Mike Monteiro says that designers are empowered by responsibility, and he's absolutely right. This talk is long form, but if you are a maker of things (especially things used by people), it's required watching. Because he's right, 1) the world is blessedly full of problems worth solving, and 2) we do not need 59 more iPad cases.

I read this a while ago, loved it, and filed it for rereading. And I'll keep bringing it out for periodic rereading, because it delivers 1) an important public service announcement and 2) excellent advice:
The Big Bore lurks inside us all. It’s dying to be set loose to lecture on Quentin Tarantino or what makes good ice cream. Fight it! Fight the urge to speak without listening, to tell a bad story, to stay inside your comfortable nest of back-patting pals. As you move away from boring, you will never be bored.

Nice.
Naomi was obsessed for about two days with portable toilets.  She did Google Image searches and printed out photos of long lines of regular blue boxes.  She made a miniature one out of cardboard.
