Per recently launched a service called DickPicLocator to highlight not only the bullying and abuse many people face through digital media, but also the amount of data that we are (often unwittingly) sharing.
“Oblivious design” – is how we, as designers (and programmers), have good intentions and good ideas but our focus is normally on very specific scenarios. This, combined with our domain knowledge, causes potential uses (and abuses) to go overlooked.
James and Per talk to Adam Scott about how we can work better (as designers and programmers) to cope with oblivious design?
