While watching Inception my WiFi lost reception giving me a much-needed exception to the deception of my perception.
Humans are only able to use 10% of their Photoshop.
The ‘internet of everything’ would really be everything in the world with a ‘like’ and ‘share’ button, but monetized. You’d spend your entire life clicking.
Not very different than much of our real lives now.
A company like Toys-R-Us should only have %-off coupons for ‘good behavior.’
Same coupons as they’d usually put out on the market, but the layout and text and usage of the coupons would be re-framed for parents, as teaching tools.
Just a simple way of re-contextualizing the UX of an existing behavior in a way that helps parents (and kids and society), while still being profitable. Maybe even more profitable.
Everyone should have themselves regularly overwhelmed by nature.
- George Harrison
Predatory loan lenders can relax on yachts. Nurses sitting by dying children have to clip coupons. This is the world we all fuel.
I want an empathy, life-improving and service-based economy. Not a market-based economy. The more you help, save, cure, teach, improve, create, entertain, the more you will get paid, and maybe only then you can run for government office.
It really should be that easy.
Except for the military. We’d still need to defend this position against the ill will of man. So all aggression can be directed there, but channeled when possible. Because the military would be directed by the interests of good.
Sometimes, we’d launch cruise missiles filled with food and books and medicine.
