A Web Designer on Fukushima

iA

As media attention on Fukushima is fading quickly, it’s time for some real analyses. This comment by Tokio-based Swiss web designer Oliver Reichenstein, a friend of mine, is one of the sharpest I’ve read on the matter. Not because he’s an expert in the field, but because he is not. He takes a unique approach, combining what he knows about designing for the web with key learnings from ancient Greek philosophy, to really add something of substance to the debate. Key statements: “Good technology is technology that doesn’t rely on perfection”; “Giving technology in the hands of people that…don’t know that they don’t know is where things started to get really dangerous.”
