“The world you take for granted everyday is being aggressively designed for you by people who don’t know you.

The potential of design in supporting social and personal action resides in the democratic nature of its process. Design is good for defining a vision and then crafting a plan or roadmap to guide the realization of this vision. Visions with clear paths of implementation provide a beacon for us to collaborate efficiently and optimistically on large projects.” —

“When it comes right down to it, it doesn’t take much more than common sense or a basic grasp of the social sciences to understand that what we say on Facebook is a biased representation of how we feel, and that this bias seriously limits what we can learn from the Facebook experiment, as designed” — Galen Panger, Why the Facebook Experiment is Lousy Social Science — Medium (via nathanjurgenson)
