Several years ago I found a reversible shirt on a sale rack. For adults. I was fascinated and amused by it. I thought it was a solution to a problem that didn’t exist.
For me, a tool is something for solving a problem. I can learn to work a tool, but I’m more interested in the problem. I got to thinking about this, and about my love for a good metaphor, as I designed a new speaker cabinet for my bass guitar rig.
