Tim Brown says that if we measure the music industry in conventional, industrial, economy terms, there has been a massive destruction of value in the last ten years. But if you think about it differently, and you think about all of the music that has been shared, all of the music that's been downloaded, all of the music that being made now, by many more people than used to be and say, 'That's our economy,' you would see a massive increase in creation of value, over the last ten years in music, not a disruption of value.

In this video interview, Brown expands on the implications of communications technology for businesses and designers with Ideas Project, a new website brought to you by Nokia. Ideas Project is an online space that provides a new way to interact with thought leaders and their big ideas about the future of connected communications. For more on this idea from Tim Brown, visit http://www.ideasproject.com.

Tim Brown, who became CEO of the renowned design firm Ideo in 2000, believes in the development of ideas through action--observing customers, prototyping, testing, refining--rather than abstract thought. An industrial designer by training, his work has earned him numerous design awards and has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Axis Gallery in Tokyo, and the Design Museum in London. Tim advises senior executives and boards of Fortune 100 companies and has led strategic client relationships with such organizations as Mayo Clinic, Microsoft, Pepsi, Procter & Gamble, and Steelcase. Tim has a special interest in the convergence of technology and the arts, as well as the ways in which design can be used to promote the well being of people living in emerging economies. A regular speaker on the value of design thinking, his upcoming book, Change By Design, on how design thinking transforms organizations, will be released by HarperBusiness in September 2009.

Ideas Project, a project of Nokia, brings together the most visionary and influential big thinkers to contemplate the big ideas that matter most to the future of communications. It is also a new kind of conversation platform aimed at uncovering the connections between these big thinkers and their disruptive ideas.
