Several sources of inspiration for this week’s assignment:

Humanist service design guidelines: Ie, rather than keeping users hooked on a product, we should be designing products that facilitate our human needs: sleep, human connection, engagement with the physical world, etc. By the Center for Humane Technology.

This Vox article also galvanized me to reconsider the importance of social connection on mental illness, while reminding me of the town of Geel, which treats mental disorders with social inclusion.

Anytime you consider anything less than everything you are missing something: J. Paul Neeley’s beautiful talk on considering everything really validated my insatiable impulse to collect the data possible.
