Design for Everyone

From Social Patterns

Jump to: navigation, search

In an interview, George Oates (part of the original Flickr team) told me that one high level principle of social design she believed was important was to design for everyone.

How can you do that? I asked her. Isn't that inherently impossible?

Then she explained it to me, and I understood what she meant, and then later I tried to remember and... I lost it.

So, I asked her to write a little essay on the topic for our book, and I'll post it here when it's done, if she doesn't mind (or you can buy the book and read it there when the time comes).
