Wow. I started this thread in February of 2008 with a lot of optimism, enthusiasm and some financial resources. I went to Qingdao, China for an Industrial Design Conference and to Korea to drum up some design/product development consulting work. Well, we know what happened in the Fall of 2008! The Wall Street debacle and the ensuing recession/depression for all of 2009-2010. And, we are now in 2011!
So, how are we all doing??? Honestly, aside from my legal work (licensing and trademark works - which also took a big hit) I accomplished absolutely zero in the field of design!
