Day 1, Summer Solstice: Perverse Optimism

Tibor Kalman: Perverse Optimist, 2000.

It's the longest day of the year. Time to celebrate and consider the potentials of becoming a perverse optimist:

"I offer a modest solution: find the cracks in the wall. There are a very few lunatic entrepreneurs who will understand that culture and design are not about fatter wallets, but about creating a future. They will understand that wealth is a means, not an end. Under the circumstances they may have turned out to be like you, creative lunatics. Believe me, they're there and when you find them, treat them well and use their money to change the world."
- Tibor Kalman, from "Fuck Committees (I believe in lunatics)"
