Oh my, I've talked to and heard from a bunch of folks who were at TED and heard Philippe Starck's talk and the consensus is that I overstated and misinterpreted his Designer As God comments as they were described on another blog. I've posted the comments that came in here. Another two came from people who said they thought I had it right but Stack's accent and rambling commentary made them unsure.

But right now, I'm apologizing to Philippe. Probably not a good idea to take slices of a talk off a blog of a speech.

We'll see when the Starck video comes out on TED Talks.
Thanks for the feedback.
