Storify founder Burt Herman on how design fuels start-ups, disruptive change and what journalists need to know

Burt Herman was a real foreign correspondent. As a reporter and bureau chief for the AP, Herman covered the world beat for 12 years. The front page of his website features a photo of him crouching behind a stone wall next to a man holding a gun the size of a fourth grader.

Herman took a few minutes to talk with SND as part of our Year-Long Conversation about design.
