Living in Information: Responsible Design for Digital Places

Front Cover
Rosenfeld Media, Jun 15, 2018 - Computers - 240 pages
Websites and apps are places where critical parts of our lives happen. We shop, bank, learn, gossip, and select our leaders there. But many of these places weren’t intended to support these activities. Instead, they're designed to capture your attention and sell it to the highest bidder. Living in Information draws upon architecture as a way to design information environments that serve our humanity.
