Art and Engineering

How to be a successful business? How to be a successful Internet business? These questions puzzled many entrepreneurs; and the puzzle continues. Set the puzzle be the background, it makes us better understand the recent declared Google departure by Douglas Bowman.

I am sympathizing Bowman's experiences. However, history tells us that it takes time for business to evolve from engineering-dominating to art-dominating, though such an evolution is nearly certain. The reason is not hard to explain. In the beginning, novel innovation on technology breaks the wall and starts a new sector of business. It is like the Google at present. When time moves forward, technology becomes mature. Thus, art in design becomes a dominant power to determine the fate of business.

Bowman, the future stands beside you.
