INGREDIENTS: Several people of different backgrounds Stanford Institute of Design A Project that involves an ongoing social problem
MAKE: A Project that benefits the society and provides a great learning experience for students.
The idea for the Stanford Design School came out of a "manifesto" written on a napkin at a Peet's coffee. The handwriting belongs to George Kembel, who was the Executive Director of the Institute.
What's cool about the school is that school teaches design methology as a way of thinking. Innovation is a constant process, not a one-time-thing that you do once in a while or a capability possesed by only the so-called "creative" people.
As written in the Stanford Hasso Platner, Institute of Design, "We want the d.school to be a place for Stanford students and faculty in engineering, medicine, business, the humanities, and education to learn design thinking and work together to solve big problems in a human centered way."

Tony Benn, the old socailist, god bless him, is one of the contributors to Bye bye blackboard at the Museum of the History of Science in Oxford.
Blackboards were wiped after use: they were meant for immediate
communication, not for record. Even as they were being used, their
messages were continuously revised, erased and renewed. But when
Einstein came to Oxford in 1931, he was already an international
celebrity. After one of his lectures a blackboard was preserved and has
become a kind of relic. It is the most famous object in this Museum.
