The worst thing I read this year, and what it taught me… or Can we design sociotechnical systems…
Ethan Zuckerman

“Many of the technologies we benefit from weren’t designed for their ultimate beneficiaries, but were simply designed well and adopted widely. Shane Snow’s proposal is built in part on this perspective — Soylent was designed for geeks who wanted to skip meals, not for prisoners in solitary confinement, but perhaps it might be preferable to Nutraloaf or other horrors of the prison kitchen.”

For some of us, though, being given only Soylent to eat would be a type of punishment in itself, worse than being locked up (in concept anyway).

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
