If we want to transforms our civilization with technology we have to create hardware and software that will encourage us to change our behaviours and habits. We must create hardware and software which can encourage us to do what we refuse to do, to think what we refuse to think, to see patterns we refuse to see, to imagine notions we are afraid to accept, to relate to individuals whose internal motivations we cannot comprehend. We need to change the purpose of design. Without this change we will continue to design technologies that are more and more dangerous. Until, one day, we have created a piece of technology that is completely out of our control.
