Recently I have been very much struck, and not in a good way, with the debate that rages on about old and new schools of planning. I get very displeased when we all feel it necessary to draw such meaningless distinctions. Imagine my surprise then when I found a recent post by a “digital” planner on the merits of some of the wise words uttered by Jon Steel. Perhaps finally old school has become new school.
In a nutshell: don’t be clever be useful – that sort of genuine wisdom has always been universal – I just don’t think us human beings learn it at any so-called planning school…….. !
