  4. Bill Moggridge meets all three criteria in an extraordinary combination, because in addition to designing and innovating he stimulates others to learn, act and reflect freshly and wisely even when working in new messy frontiers. This is captured in his saying, you need to experience an experience to experience it. An inventive and mindful industrial-interaction designer entrepreneur… with big heart and ability to laugh and work with and for others. Congrats!

  6. Bill has given me the dream, to one day work on a beach with a tablet type laptop drawing up designs while being next to inspiration.
