Don’t feed the designers after midnight

A presentation at STHLM Xperience Conference in in Stockholm, Sweden by Per Axbom

We have never been better att increasing efficiency and rushing to keep pace with run-away technical developments. But although we may be better at doing things the right way, how do we ensure that we are making the right things? How do we know what gremlins our designs create? The demand for managing ethical queries, before we let technology make decisions for us, often clashes with the idea that we are always one step behind technical advances.

In his talk Per Axbom explains why we as humans make bad decisions and guides us through methods and practical tools for bringing moral judgment into our decision processes. By taking into account positive and negative impact we can better control not only efficiency but also goal fulfilment. And we can, hopefully, stay away from eating after midnight.
