Discussions

In our design classes I use to introduce special topics to discuss in the classroom. We talk sometimes about  issues based on articles, sometimes books, videos, movies, or the news. The topics are not necessarily related to design or the courses I teach, but they are intentionally approached from our design point of view and intentionally challenging to our design thinking.

In this post I have included a couple of issues. Please feel free to add comments here or bring thoughts to the class.

Commit Facebook Suicide become a movement! Below is a link to the article that I delivered in Des 493 from Adbusters

You can notice now that there is a lot of talk about this on internet. Bring your thoughts to the class!

Middle East crisis, a good article.

Any association with “Children of Men” (the movie) a simple coincidence?
