Io John Maaeda l'ho ascoltato alla Mediateca di Milano...Interessante :-)
Followed his speech in Milan through Second Life. Was a cool experience :)
Looking forward to listen to him live though...
Whether this is interesting or not will largely depend on who chairs and facilitates the discussion, as Maeda can be hard to pin down or challenge. Past Maeda talks at the ICA (in 2000 and 2002) have failed on this count, and the Design Museum has a variable record of getting the best out of star speakers.
