I tossed the above out to see what thoughts might emerge. Interesting
that some folks came back to defend the orgs. I surely wasn't suggesting
that these orgs should be consulting with us before moving forward.
There were some other topics that I hoped would emerge though:
1. Are these two disciplines, graphic and industrial design, the roots
of all design disciplines? Did they spawn from architecture?
2. Some of us are so distant from these organizations that they are
meaningless. Why is this so? As a result can they adequately speak for
all of design? Can design have one voice anyway?
