Re: J Mays joins Whirlpool

He's a great designer of objects, not a great designer of products. Ultimately he was just a manager and Ford still designed by committee.

I will hand it to J. Mays, he introduced many design themes and philosophies that I admire to this day. He certainly did a better job communicating those design methodologies than anybody I've seen before.
