Episode Info:

Hans Gerwitz again joins Joe and Guus on the podcast to dive into the philosophical side and fixation of designing for convenience. Through better usability, connectivity, and desirability, we are creating a world where people can't simply "opt out". They no longer need to leave their homes to socialize, work, or get food. Everything is a service, everything is delivered. The trio set out to discuss the implications of this on designers and society. What does this mean as designers if we aid this transformation toward the Matrix, and is it utopian or dystopian. Do we as designers have an ethical responsibility to let people know where they are going, and offer an opt out?
