“I urge you - make the web that we want” Tim Berners-Lee, SXSW 2014

“The ability to surveil everyone on the planet is almost there and, arguably, will be there in the next couple of years” Julian Assange, SXSW 2014

The NSA and its counterparts in other countries, are “setting fire to the future of the internet. You guys that are in the room are all the firefighters.” Edward Snowden SXSW 2014

“with everything from diapers to dishwashers being “connected,” what does this mean for society as a whole?”

"Do we run the risk of losing control and allowing technology to take over lives?”

Are we becoming too smart? Tony Salvador, anthropologist, Intel Corp

Radical Visibility: changed the way we expose ourselves to each other

Radical Imbalance: We give in the hope of getting something, but we don’t get or give what we’re thinking

Radical Power Shift: Very few know a lot about many people, without the few knowing

Gareth James, 38 ¾ There is good in that there data

Quantified self = Self Actualization @benessen, Iris Worldwide

We want our technology to be smart, but also deeply personal Jennifer Dunnam - Frog Design

So what do I think this means in terms of design?

Avoid Gimmicks

Think way beyond the screen

Our interfaces have to calm down

Be careful how your gestures look

Thanks. @mrgarethjames
