Fast Company Brings You: The BabySuit

babysuit_fc_toledano.jpg

Another installment from the "wait, haven't I been reading this article for the last ten years, too?" department: this time a classic bubble-era fluff-piece on how all us businessfolk are ignoring demographics at our own peril!. ["there are no courses on demographics at Harvard Business School or Wharton, for example," There are no courses on PowerPoint, either, but it doesn't mean it's not used everywhere.]

Anyway, the article's non-content is irrelevant, except as it served to inspire photographer Phil Toledano to create this, his masterpiece: The BabySuit.

May Fast Company live to publish another 10 glorious years.

I disagree with you on the demographics message. Technically, I can read a physics equation, that doesn't mean I understand it. And, just like PowerPoint, knowing that you can use it or how to use it, doesn't mean you're using it properly (20 bullet point per page presentations anyone?).
