Here's a quick summary of the recent re-design-crowd-sourcing debacle at Gap. http://www.idsgn.org/posts/gap-turns-to-crowdsourcing/
And more importantly, here is the letter that AIGA sent to GAP. Your national organization for design (AIGA) provides thought leadership on ethical business practices for the profession and has taken a stand against crowdsourcing.

Check out the web project Thirty Conversations on Design. They asked 30 creatives two questions: “What single example of design inspires you most?” and “What problem should design solve next?”
Of particular interest:
Daniel Pink on the eraser and where he thinks design should focus next: systems.
Deborah Alder on designing for your audience.
*Daniel Pink wrote a nice little book, A Whole New Mind: Why Right Brainers Will Rule The Future, that is worth checking out. Perhaps some light winter break reading?
"Lawyers. Accountants. Computer programmers. That’s what our parents encouraged us to become when we grew up. But Mom and Dad were wrong. The future belongs to a very different kind of person with a very different kind of mind. The era of “left brain” dominance, and the Information Age that it engendered, are giving way to a new world in which “right brain” qualities-inventiveness, empathy, meaning-predominate. That’s the argument at the center of this provocative and original book, which uses the two sides of our brains as a metaphor for understanding the contours of our times."
