American Fortune cookies are the best. After throwing
away the first (You will meet influential people), I got another one
(Use your skills). I better do, I thought, one day before the final presentations.
The third (Your dearest wish will come true) made me almost believe in
that oracle when I got the offer for an 3 month internship at IDEO
San Francisco. Learning and practicing the IDEO methods during two
CCA Projects (Single Egg Cooker and timbuk2) was already fascinating.
But getting the chance to work for IDEO during the summer was like when
I was 4, finding a 5$ note in front of a candy-shop.
