Read full description of the books 101 Theses On Design: And Other Essays On the Design of Digital Things:" 1. Design is a plan for making things. Good plans lead to good things. Thus we need good design and good designers if we want nice things.
2. The designer’s materials are information and interaction. Her tools are critical thinking and clear communication.
3. The digital product is co-created by the designer with her users, to a lesser or greater degree.
4. The designer’s medium contains growing amounts of data made by growing numbers of humans. [The data? The medium?] is always changing and unknowable. Design does not end at launch."
This special Kindle edition is a vital sampler of new thinking on how to design for, and see, the digital age. Wodtke’s essays range from career advice to insights on the future of the internet.
Why is homogenization of the internet a bad thing?
What are practices you can put if place to help you to design better digital "things"?
How and where to find a job?
Why are compassion and pragmatism important, and how can you get yourself some?
Wodtke offers didacticism, irreverence, humor, and humanity in this collection of essays on how to make the online world a better place.
(Essays previously published on Wodtke’s eleganthack.com and other online sites, as well as the eponomous 101 Essays on Design)
From the forward: "So why buy this book? Maybe you’d like all the essays in one place, preferably on your Kindle. Or maybe you’d like to buy it in order to say thanks for all my writing. I’d be good with that." — Christina Wodtke"
