Day-to-day Complexity Duration Things go wrong Reflexivity


As actors, people accept the introduction of technologies. People, actors, are the markets. The possible transcending of limitations time and place is extremely attractive for any human being in certain situations. In this study it has been argued that the surpassing of the dimensions of time and place by the mediation of technology also has social implications, which we are hardly aware of. These social implications concern the way trust and truth are negotiated between people who know each other, and between people who do not know each other. This is why YUTPA as a methodology for design may contribute to a more deliberate design of products and processes that aims to support the democratic development of our societies in which bio-diversity is increasingly challenged by techno-diversity and in which processes of purification and mediation/translation consistently arise.
