No one can quibble with the facts that the US infrastructure is in bad shape – but it is not about aging it is about design for the 21st century and beyond. Take the audit on US major bridges and the collapse of the Minnesota Twin Cities bridge which was the result of faulty design. We can not continue to keep shoring up faulty infrastructures and industries which were designed for a past era. Instead, we need to grasp the opportunity to design a sustainable future.

More collaboration

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

Without this, these models are too quickly ignored when a "sexier" approach comes along.

The designations I used were the ones management used to determine pay rates, career paths, etc. They were not the designations the employees used to describe themselves. Because I designed them around labels, not around people. All ready to go green?
