    Great resolution. :-)

    My two cents: I'd recommend occasionally looking for slightly more out-of-left field books that tangentially touch on what you're interested in – it can be a great way to expand the scope of what you see as 'design'.

    Just as an example, I'm currently reading The Invention of Nature by Andrea Wulf – it's a great recent work of non-fic looking a the life of the naturalist Alexander von Humboldt. It offers a fascinating lens through which to see the world, and I suspect that you'd be able to figure out ways to incorporate some of the ideas explored in your own work!

      Thats a brilliant idea. I would definitely make sure to try this. Though, I start loosing interest after a few chapters if the book is not completely to my taste. So, I would try to fine tune my side-tracked readings. Thank you for the idea.
