‘We make our world what it is, and we become the kind of people who live in it.’

Wilson Miner – When We Build from Build on Vimeo.

Do yourself a favor. Find a quiet place and watch this video. It will be the best 38 minutes you spend today. In it Wilson Minor, co-founder of EveryBlock and previously an interactive designer for Apple, speaks about the importance of design and making good things. He is talking to a technology crowd, but it’s easy to extend what he is saying to what you do.

Personally, I feel a direct connection between Minor’s words and what Robert Pirsig says about striving for quality in “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance”.
