Good instead of evil

A recent post on the glut of ‘design for good’ blogs and organisations from David Stairs at Design Altruism has sent a shiver of guilt through my designer polo-necked spine (not that I am wearing one, but you get the idea). Is my blog just adding to the noise? What am I actually DOING about the problems I see in the world. He pleads for more designers who are ready and able to put in the hard yards to do real work, not just tweet about their interest in the issues (point taken).

For the record, I am a designer that is more than ready to put down the mouse and get her ‘boots dirty’, but only if my skills can be of actual help. I know my limits. Anyone want to employ me?
