"Last week, I visited the Institute of Design (also known as the d.school) at Stanford University. Stuart Coulson, an adjunct professor at the school took me and my colleague Claire Lee around and gave us a little information about the school, its origins and what it was doing.
I learned a few things I didn't know. The d.school isn't really a part of the University itself. It's an independent organization in the school that students can take part in and get add-ons to their degree. The school is also using a $100 million grant to build micro-design and innovation centers all over the world. They are working in Africa pretty intensely, where Microsoft BizSpark will be in October at DEMO Africa...."
