As part of my classes, students are asked to evaluate newspaper article for information relating to Product Design, Conceptual Design, Interaction Design, and Interface Design. Their work is shared publicly via this site.

Each contributor adds another interesting perspective to the site. And contributors get to know each other and become friends and collaborators on projects: this is where good ideas come from!
