  1. Hi Julia,

    your Talk at the HfG MediaLab was a great reminder to continuously rethink our decisions as designers and the possible impact those decisions have on todays society. The active discussion afterwards clearly showed us that many people / students really bother about the question where nowadays UX- or user-centered design is heading. Thank you for raising awareness about this important topic in our minds and for the fresh input to think about.

    Spread the word!
