The guest of this podcast episode is an old friend of WUDRome, in fact he was one of the speakers we met in the 2018 edition to discuss together the theme "Design for Good or Evil". It's been a few years but the debate about the political, social and moral repercussions of progress is still relevant. Cennyd Bowles, author of "Future Ethics", returned to engage with us on an important topic: is technology neutral?
And why would people think that?
According to the first of Kranzberg's six laws, Technology "is neither good nor bad, nor is it neutral".
So what is the role of design? And if technology can prove to be a resource and a threat at the same time, what can we do to be in control? Our discussion in the company of Cennyd Bowles starts from here to reflect on the tools we already have and the journey to follow.
