Thomas Thwaites, author of The Toaster Project...
Praise for the Toaster Project:
Hidden in Thomas Thwaites' deceptively simple story is an epic tale that touches on electronics, metallurgy, sustainability, social history, consumerism, epistemology, and global post-industrial capitalism, among other things. It is also funny as hell. Dare I say it? The Toaster Project is the 21st century's first masterpiece of design writing.
--Michael Bierut, Partner, Pentagram Design
The Toaster Project is so cool it is beyond words. It is art and science, history and the future, all in one brilliant idea. Although a tiny project, it is mythic in scope. Once seen, never forgotten.
--Kevin Kelly, Wired magazine
