Comment on Folder, File, Function – The Omnipresence of the Modern Computer Interface by Michelle Xu

I found your conclusion to be really insightful. Given all the potential negative consequences technology might have in the future (like in The Machine Stops), I will hand it to innovation that technology will only aim to be more and more intuitively designed for the consumer. So I think in that case, I don’t really see design changing dramatically if it’s already on a medium we understand well (like the computer or the phone). However, should there be a new Google Glass, I think it’s fair game.

I hate to admit that I am not in control, but I think this is a case of the horse and the carrot: we’re just being led to continue going forward as the carrot of technology continues to modernize and develop.
