How are designers tackling the idea of ethics? In the first part of our interview, Alan uses politics and democracy as a vehicle for highlighting the importance of ethics in our work as digital practitioners and the massive impact our work has on the world.
We are the creators of the channels of misinformation and we can do something about it.
We put two UX Podcast “heptascale” questions to Alan – and when we posed the second question to him how much designers should know about code, the flood gates opened and Alan gave us his perspective on this topic that regularly gets raised in our industry.
Nobody is disagreeing with this, but breathless demands for designers to “know code” masks bigger problem of coders steamrolling designers. https://t.co/4aoKxb8Mmv
