A Danish Design Centre report on innovators and design and technology for society (also thanks to @gquaggiotto... we do follow other people, honest.)

The Royal Statistical Society has written a manifesto on improving data for policy making, democracy and prosperity.
Ingrid Melvaer from Design Council on how they built experimental psychology into the design process of the Knee High Challenge (which is about designing services for little children rather than your new winter boots).
