Asian growth in design (was RE: Revenge of the Right-side of the brain)

The issue of Asian Design is a VERY interesting one. It is especially
interesting in industrial design and I'm sure it will eventually cross over
into interaction design as these are so linked together.

China especially is putting a lot of money into this effort by building some
hundreds of design programs as they want to bring more value to their
manufacturing services by closing more of the loop on the total process.

Here is an interesting interview with the recently hired director of the
design program at a university in Hong Kong.

What is the problem worth studying in location-based services?

I am a senior student. Recently, I need to decide my thesis topics. I am intrested in location-based services (LBS). So, I need to know the problems you have ever encountered about LBS applications such as foursquare gowalla and so on. And it will be better if the problem belongs to user reseach. If you have some questions or suggestions, show me. Thanks.
