Wicked: design solutions creating new problems…

We have criticized Facebook as we found it invasive and manipulating to our personal information, however the danger is not in the tool but in its use and success (176,000,000 users and counting). Making more connections, now Wordle –a viz tool we analyzed in class– is being criticized with strong arguments too. See the article in this link

Can these examples be analyzed under what Horst Rittel called “wicked problems”?. In-class discussion coming.
