DFSC#5 Writing a Wicked Problem Paper

This weekend is PACKED. I leave in the morning for FirstBuild’s Hackathon at 5am, and won’t be back until Sunday night at like 10pm. :( I’m a little worried that two days of possible homework-doing will be taken away from me, but I am also very excited for the opportunity the Hackathon brings to me.

Anyway, I’ve been working all week on this Wicked Problem paper and presentation! It’s been honestly very difficult. I keep wanting to write more and more and go into more and more depth. But I guess that’s the thing with these problems: they’re huge and complex and all over the place. I’m so excited to see how everything turns out, I love my topic on Food Crisis. I wonder if i should bring anything into class that day as sort of a takeaway…like apples…those are healthy. We’ll see!

When writing my paper, I came to a point where I want to propose a possible solution, or mediation of the current wicked problem. It probably doesn’t solve all the parts this problem has, but it’s a start. It’s a way to use design to implement a cultural social change into the world, and make it work. I will map the good and bad about my solution as well!
