Building Invention

I am thinking a lot about invention, re-invention and the times we are in. Reading this book Glimmer by Warren Berger has been interesting but all the designers he discusses still rely upon the magic client to make a designers world happen. I wonder, isn't it time for designers to think though the entire problem- the financing down to the beauty....Will that effect real change when the designer is truly responsible for the manifestation of any idea. Mark Twain is a hero of mine and he invented the first blog.....he also was terribly frustrated by how publishers paid authors so spent many years working on a printing press to solve this problem...he never succeeded but we can learn from his work. Solve the problems of economics first hand then you have the power to change great things.
