Make me think

  • The real consequences of Silicon Valley’s AI obsession
    “Sam Bankman-Fried made effective altruism a punchline, but its philosophy of maximum do-gooding masks a thriving culture of predatory behavior.”
  • Slow design
    “In our fast-paced world today, we often forget the importance of patience and taking time to think things through. We want to remind people of the value of creativity and clever thinking, supporting a movement that embraces focus, skill, and understanding over fast production and short-lived trends.”
  • The ‘Sunken Place’ is real in UX design
    “At the heart of this saying is something that’s often overlooked when UX leaders advocate for diversity, equity, and inclusion — the complex reality of historically minoritized leaders actively discriminating against their own communities.”
