Manifiesto de Participación y Disrupción Abierta de Eric Paulos

Eric Paulos (profesor de HCI y Ubiquitous Computing en Carnegie Mellon), acaba de escribir un pequeño Manifesto of Open Disruption and Participation que vale la pena leer completo, pero esta frase resume bastante bien el espíritu del mismo:

“Blinded by our quest for “smart technologies” we have forgotten to contemplate the design of technologies to inspire us to be smarter, more curious, and more inquisitive. We owe it to ourselves to rethink the impact we desire to have on this historic moment in computing culture” … “We must change our mantra: “not usability but usefulness and relevancy to our world, its citizens, and our environment”… We must design for the world and what matters…. This means discussing ubiquitous computing alongside new keywords such as the economy, the environment, activism, religion, and politics”
