The challenges we face today are the outcome of skewed priorities. Profit first. Profit only. Pushing people and technology into squeezing efficiencies regardless of need our side effects. Short-term gains over sustainable practices. Thinking for over thinking through. 1/
Education systems, governance structures, work practices, ... everything focused on "smart" solutions for quick returns and for "speed & scale" which most of us talk about but hardly understand. Why scale? What to scale? The 'HOW' traps us into believing that it's progress. 2/
How come even 'best practices' aren't working? What has changed? @salimismail says technologies are growing exponentially, and redefining today's reality. He's right. The future is hurtling at us carrying the debris of humankind's historical ways of thinking. 3/

1/ The world is changing right in front of us; never before has change been as palpable. Most if it is being driven by technology which seems to be disrupting each and every domain. The obsession with technology driving progress to the exclusion of everything else is a bane.
2/ While it isn't a good idea to ignore technology, especially those that actually improve human life and condition, including those that make decisions faster and more accurate and those that make life safer and longer, one-sided technology growth will do more harm than good.
3/ Applying technology in context of people and environment must take precedence over speed and scale. Holistic design of solutions and services in individualized moulds is the path. Because the age of average is done and dusted. The factory model of #education must be disrupted.

1/ The rebuilding of Japan post the horrific atom bomb, fuelled the design philosophy to create a disposable culture. India however, remained largely unaffected. (Exception: City culture is homogenous worldwide)…
2/ India context— Reuse is seen everywhere. Repair and recycle continues to be the norm. "Wasting" is a foreign sensibility and throwing away things doesn't come naturally. The feel-good of keeping old stuff is deeply embedded in the collective consciousness.
3/ Design drives all change in terms of materials, processes of manufacture, fashion, trends... actually they're deeply intertwined and highly interdependent. Responsible design values come before economic compulsions at individual, company, industry and societal levels.

1/ #Design your audience:

1. Curate the initial community with the right audience
2. They, in turn, create the right feedback loop
3. Don't ignore the designing of the community

2/ #Design your audience:

E.g. @dribbble allows only community-nominated 'prospects' ( to content. This ensures the best and relevant content

3/ #Design your audience:

I would go a step beyond. For optimized network effects of a consumer #productdesign, you need to design the dynamics of consumer interactions.

Almost every day for the last month or so, I've pumped at work. Not in the basement pump room that's like a 10 minute walk to get to, or hiding out in the bathroom armchair, but AT WORK. In lab. On my microscope. At my desk. Around other humans. This is a #momlife thread 1/
I've pumped while taking care of fruit flies. While doing microdissections. While standing in the sandwich line at the cafeteria. Walking down the hallway. In the elevator. Walking home. ON THE EFFING SUBWAY. I even pumped in class a couple of times 2/
This is because @Freemie finally brought pumping into the twenty - first century with the #freemieliberty. There's a wearable technology for every sport under the sun, and now, finally, for pumping too. 3/
