“now that we can do anything, what shall we do?”

Have a look at the Massive Change weblog, documenting the ideas surrounding the eponymous book. Interesting topslicing of the ‘social function’ of design in society, identifying areas within which designers can be agents for change.

“Instead of structuring our project around professional design disciplines, like graphic design and industrial design, we looked at design from the perspective of the citizen. Design economies are the regions of our lives that are being transformed, and in some cases invented, by new capacity designed to shape the world.”
