Diversity of diversities

Metadesign aims to create a synergy of benign synergies. By making these synergies practically useful, and by sharing them within communities, humanity would be able to ‘do more with less’.

Synergy requires difference.

At the conceptual level this is similar to the possibility-finding technique that Koestler called bisociation. At the ecological level it is similar to symbiosis, or the systemic stability that derives from bio-diversity. Metadesigners may therefore need to seek, and/or co-create a ‘diversity-of-diversities’. This is a difficult prospect that will require collective innovation, development, field-testing, evaluation and refinement.

Who designs now?

The use of generative tools for codesigning has implications for what it means to be a designer and a design researcher today. we can see that these roles are becoming mutually interdependent and are converging to the point where they are blurring. Who creates the tools for the new design language? Who interprets the results of this new languaje? Designers and researchers will need to work together to explore the implications of this new language.


How does the emergence of the new tools change the nature of design education? Designers will be trained to go beyond the individualized expression of visual communication and learn how to become involved in the creation and construction of generative tools. The creative spirit of people in the design profession is essential for the exploration, development and analysis of the new tools.


Collective generativity is beginning to replace individual creativity. Mutual respect is essential. The use of generative tools for codesigning requires a new mindset on the part of designers and design researchers, i.e., respect not only for each other but also respect for the people who are served by design. This will perhaps be the most difficult challenge.

New Spaces

Other uses of the participatory methods and tools have emerged in the last few years. We are beginning to use the generative tools to seed a mindset of collective creativity in group workshops. We call them Strategic Visioning Workshops. In these workshops we use an assortment of large toolkits to enable a group of people to work together to express their ideas and dreams, thereby facilitating more effective collaboration. The transformation that takes place when a groups of people goes from a verbal exchange of ideas to a collective and visually expressive mode is remarkable. It is invariably positive and can often be quite therapeutic for the participants.

Imagine

Those of us involved in bringing new products and services to market reduce people to the roles they play in the design development process. We see and think of them as “consumers” when they shop, as “costumers” when they buy and as “users” when they interact with the objects of their desire. Rarely do we integrate the roles that people play to come to see then in a holistic manner. Rarely do we take the time to get to know them as people.

We are beginning now to veer away from this reductionistic, product-focused world. We are heading into a new space where relationships between people matter more than products and where human experience is what matters most of all. The new space is people-centered, not just user-centered. At this point in time, information and communication technologies have given people the ability to say what they think and to demand what they want, when they want it. And people are beginning to speak up.

Imagine a world whose future is made of the dreams of everyday people. This new world could offer a people-centered array of experiences instead of the mind-numbing, consumer-driven array of choices we have today. It could connect us more deeply to what really is important in our lives. It could be a more humanistic world. The design challenges we face in achieving this dream are immense, particulrly in the digital domain.

To reach this new space, we will need to bring everyday people into the center of the design development process, respecting their ideas and desires. People-centered design is a process of discovering possibilities and opportunities, with people, that address their needs and aspirations for experience.

Definición de Wiki

Un wiki o una wiki (del hawaiano wiki, ‘rápido’)1 es un sitio web cuyas páginas pueden ser editadas por múltiples voluntarios a través del navegador web. Los usuarios pueden crear, modificar o borrar un mismo texto que comparten.

———————————————————

wiki is a website which allows its users to add, modify, or delete its content via a web browser usually using a simplified markup language or a rich-text editor. Wikis are powered by wiki software. Most are created collaboratively.

Wikis serve many different purposes, such as knowledge management and notetaking. Wikis can be community websites and intranets, for example. Some permit control over different functions (levels of access). For example, editing rights may permit changing, adding or removing material. Others may permit access without enforcing access control. Other rules may also be imposed for organizing content.
