What is the Future of Design in 50 Seconds?

From Jnd.org & Don Norman:

I’m developing a new talk: “21st Century Design: Addressing Major Societal Issues.”

I discuss how we must start addressing the serious societal issues in the world, what we in the UC San Diego Design Lab call “Complex Sociotechnical Systems” (which some of my friends simply call “the world”).

The slides and manuscript are still in preparation, but here is is the the teaser video:

And here is the URL for a ROUGH DRAFT of the slides. I’m still refining the talk, but hope to give a version of it in Dubai, Ahmedabad, and later in the year, in Kyiv (Ukraine).

Why I Don’t Believe in Empathic Design

Human-centered design pioneer Don Norman, who coined the term ‘user experience,’ explains why he’s not convinced by the current obsession with empathy and what we should do instead.

I approve of the spirit behind the introduction of empathy into design, but I believe the concept is impossible, and even if possible, wrong. The reason we often talk about empathy in design is that we really need to understand the people that we’re working for. The idea is that, essentially, you’re in a person’s head and understand how they feel and what they think.

UK Markey Center and UCSD Seek to Improve Cancer Care with LAUNCH

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Americans living in rural areas are more likely to die of cancer than their counterparts in urban settings, which sets them apart from the many communities nationwide that have experienced a 20 percent decrease in cancer mortality over the past two decades. In Appalachia, the cancer picture is bleaker than in other rural parts of the country. Between 1969 and 2011, cancer incidence declined in every region of the country except rural Appalachia, and mortality rates soared.

This week (Monday, June 17th, 2019) an Innovation Studio workshop was held at the PRTC center announcing a program called LAUNCH.
