That’s cool! Now I also know why the engines sit so far forwards. I always thought it was something to do with engine thrust flowing under the wing, I’d actually never considered center of gravity.

Also just watched the Chris Do post, he has some really great content on valuing design.

Yah. That Chris Do stuff is great. He is obviously focused on branding but most of what he is saying is applicable across any creative field.

Here's a 1.5 hr long podcast where Chris Do talks about his personal background. It's very transparent. It was my first intro to him and gave me a special appreciation for his Futur/Skool videos.

What this lacks in design substance it makes up in pure coolness.

Interesting short. The idea of "we are stronger if we work together" is something I wish there was more of in the world.

I think a lot of business leaders see their individual markets as zero sum games. In order for your marketshare to go up, someone else has to go down. In stable mature product categories that can be the case... but the category can also be ripe for disruption and growth. Take headphones, a totally stable market. Most were free (came with a product) or cheap replacements (crap, lost my headphones and I'm at the airport, I don't want to spend more the $20), with one mid tier player (Bose) and a few very high end players. Beats entered the market and instead of taking share by crushing competitors, they basically doubled the size of the pie.

I know this isn't the point of the video, and I also think the $250 fashion headphones aren't the model for increased global happiness, but a micro proof point of a macro concept. I've only met a few leaders who think this way. A few years ago Nike stated a goal to reach $50B. It wasn't that long ago that the entire sportswear industry was smaller than that. Could they reach their goal by taking share, yes, but it would be an incredibly hard slog and probably not the best thing for the category or sustaining that number. The only way to grow is to increase the overall size of the pie.

I'm not sure if this is a "design short"... but I loved learning how turbos work:

I wouldn't necessarily call this inspirational, but interesting:

Just watched the zero-sum vs positive-sum video, that was quite impactful.

Keen to see Rams!
