IDS09 Favourite Things: Design Talks – Design Trends by the Minute

DSC_3870

On Saturday I saw the presentation Design Talks – Design Trends by the Minute. It was a round table featuring some of the biggest bloggers in the Design world: Harry Wakefield (mocoloco.com), Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan (Apartment Therapy) and Grace Bonney (design*sponge).

It was interesting to hear how they started and their opinions on blogging. It was interesting to hear that Grace Bonney doesn’t use social media or RSS. A little surprising about the RSS and not so much about the social media as she was the only one on stage without a death grip on their smartphones.

I was on Twitter and posted some key points.

It was really interesting to hear that they all are moving away from Blogrolls, saying that content is the new blogroll. Chew on that for a bit bloggers.
