A RESPONSE TO SIMON B
In a recent post, I mentioned a book I had read some time ago about the design of common objects, like the paper clip and the pop top can. Simon B. asked for the reference. Well, it took a good deal of Googling, but I have come up with it. The book is Invention By Design, and the author is Ed Buch, who turns out to be a professor at Duke, in the next town over from mine. I found it a really fun read.
