R.I.P. Bill Moggridge

Bill Moggridge, legendary designer of the first laptop computer, co-founder of design firm IDEO, and director of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, passed away earlier this week after a battle with cancer. I had the honor of interviewing Bill at his home in California in 2008 for “Objectified”. He was a brilliant designer, educator, and all-around gentleman. He will be missed.

The Cooper-Hewitt has created a video tribute to Bill, and the folks at IDEO have made a website celebrating Bill’s memory. See some of the entires there or add your own.

And here’s a clip of Bill’s appearance in “Objectified”.
