Blogger Challenge

One of my Design Thinking friends has “tagged” me with a blog challenge. Here’s what I’m supposed to do:

  1. Acknowledge the nominating blogger.

  2. Share 11 random facts about yourself.

  3. Answer the 11 questions the nominating blogger has created for you.

  4. List 11 bloggers.

  5. Post 11 questions for the bloggers you nominate to answer, and let all the bloggers know they have been nominated. Don’t nominate a blogger who has nominated you.

So, here goes:

  1. Acknowledge the nominating blogger.

Jenn Chan is one of the people I’ve met through the Twitter chat #dtk12chat and the DTK12 post-chat show. Jenn is a great resource on Design Thinking and has become one of my “go-tos” when it comes to learning about DT.
