What Motivated Me:
Started to see the value, power, and importance of including my past education & experience in psychology and sociology.
Had several successful projects where this additional focus enabled the complete resolution of the problem.
I could see that you don't need degrees in all those other areas... you just have to reach out to experts and/or the internet. Perhaps most importantly, you need humility and a passion to learn.
This rekindled my interest in learning more about so many different things. This is a key element missing from STEM efforts today.
It is fun and satisfying to engage in this activity (otherwise, I would have dropped this years ago).
Why I started Hybrid-Design.org:
Seeing other people get excited about this, makes me feel great. But I am not naive about it, ie. I realize very few people in the world will get excited about this. I don't mind though, as seeing even a couple of people get turned on to it, would be great!
