Design means little without purpose. Purpose fits need. "Well now that we're here let me tell ya"
The future is all we have to get from this moment, so take all that sweet diddly creative talent and let's get to the next few, a few more, just a few unknown (oblivion help us if they are still diddling like this in still water while millions of our relatives and cohabitants suffer our delusions of comfort & boredom) moments ahead, for our own needs, for our kids and grand kids.
I see many of your takes on the present and all it's problems, glory and excesses. Well fuck it! Wake up! We're here aren't we? Let's move it on a little farther down the evolutionary line kids! haha! I know some of you are trying to move it on... but look around, where's the focus and collaboration of great creative minds on useful function and purpose? Find it and let's take it up a notch. Bauhaus boohoos redux ...bring it!
We let one culture commit genocide on another, (not just one, I mean one after another, man!) just because we have not the 'Dude' fairness and heart to control our own population urges. Ya, dog says we can't, or dog says women are lesser men, or dog says we are the chosen ones, or dog dammit, we just hide in our cozy lives of tech & toys and take no responsibility, even for ourselves, our own relations. and everything/everyone we care for and love.
Good starts like Ello are fine, but if we fill the pool with the same play waters and don't even swim to the ocean, what's really the point of any of this? Taking the first hard step into an unknown dimension is always... a hard step ...is there a floor, is here light, is there a way to find me, find peace, find reason again, in the depthless empty dark?
I understand why so many take refuge in religion, the previous paragraph says it. Someone please help me find my reason!
But we're past that now. We have taken the reins of the dogless and onward we must go. on on
