Good TED talk video about the role of design thinking today.
I’m not quite sure about the references to Isambard Brunel, as his biggest idea the Great Eastern was never commercially viable. I also think its interesting to reflect on that early industrial era that they didn’t quite fully understand the technologies they were working with – the first iron bridge was built using carpentry techniques, which was neither cost effective or good engineering for that kind of material. Having said, people learnt from those mistakes.
