I spoke in Eindhoven in Holland today to kick off Dutch Design Week. I was going to talk about my definition of health, because it differs so radically from the typical American doctor’s definition of health. But when you go to Holland you see how the entire countryside and urban landscape has bike lanes for all kinds of riders– young and old, they all ride. For the past 40 years, the Dutch have mandated that anytime you build a road for cars, there must be a separate bike lane also built. And then you see the windmills that have been a staple of Dutch culture for ages, you quickly realize that the last thing they need is some American lecturing them about health.
