The fifth Design in Tech Report has officially launched and although the response has been positive, what I enjoy the most is reflecting upon what I probably should have put into the report. If you haven’t paged through it yet, I made an abridged version on the eve of the report for subscribers to my monthly briefing — it suffices as a “trailer” of what I cover in the report.
The report spans a total of six sections:
1) TBD = Tech × Business × Design
How do technology, business, and design interrelate in the startup and corporate ecosystems today?
Computational Design …
… works in a new Moore’s Law-fueled medium that is from an alien universe.
… makes big data. And that makes it need thick data to combat scaled biases.
… creates economic opportunity because it advances a valuable new kind of talent.
… needs to counterbalance itself with an emotional connection (i.e. art).
… is the most valuable kind of design right now in the technology industry.
Inclusive Design …
… works in an old-fashioned world that’s been excluding people for too long.
… fights big data (scaled biases) when making thick data — by going proximate.
… locates imbalances and opportunities to solve problems with those impacted.
… enrichens the critical depth of makers, pointing them to meaningful problems.
… is the most important kind of design right now in the technology industry.
