Manifesto

Written by on 20th October 2011 in "Official" Papers, Thoughts with Leave a comment

A quick manifesto assignment from last week. I think I could spend some more time fleshing this out to connect the dots. Some of the feedback was that it wasn’t very clear how the different sections related. But I think it’s a good start, and helpful to sort of reduce things down to some points.

———-

We believe technologies should create and facilitate spaces for humans to work and play in their own way.

Technology

  • Technology must foster human relationships.
  • Technology must allow humans to act human.
  • Technology must be enjoyable to use.
  • Technology must democratize human power.
  • Technology must be adaptable.

Space

  • Spaces must allow for emergent behavior.
  • Spaces must allow for arbitrary rules to be bent and broken.
  • Spaces must be potential spaces of possibility.
  • Spaces must nurture our humanity and individuality.
  • Spaces must be editable.

Play

  • Play must promote our values.
  • Play must cross cultural divides.
  • Play must thrive in all environments.
  • Play must be for everyone.
  • Play must be free form.

Work

  • Work must never be boring.
  • Work must always be rewarding.
  • Work must never just be a means to an end.
  • Work must nurture our curiosity.
