industrial design in 10 years?

hi all.

this may be a pretty general question, but how do you guys see the product design/manufacturing industries within 10 years or so? any good/bad views of it? and what challenges do you think do new, just out of college student face, especially when not only do they have to compete with local designers, they have to compete with “imported” workers and people around the world?

just wondering. thanks.

See the thread here for some thoughts on the long term forecasts…

thanks man! that was very helpful.

“Urgent HEL” thread worth reading maybe. kinda long.
