Social Design is all able designing for the world.
Like how this class was called...
Design like you give a damn.
Lemme change that....... design like you give a SHITTTTTT.... is more like it.
This topic is all about making shit that is going to change our world and improve mankind and everything about us.
This is not just about improving us. But help everyone, even just the third world countries.
What I like is that Amartya Sen said that poverty is seen as the deprivation of capabilities.
DUDE... America is not poor when it comes to capability. We're poor cos we dont do shit. We're poor in the sense of acting on shit. It took the Black Civil Rights movement till the fuckin 1960's for some shit to go down. And that's big. Well when it comes to helping based on art. SHITS are not gonna get done.
What we need to do with this is to make social design in our lives. Make a living an something that people need to have... that way they spend money that is going to help us help them.
We just need to make shit that is going to change people's lives. We need to change the way we live.
NOW... im gonna talk about why I have that Postsecret picture.
to many people, they might be think that post secret is just post secret. but its so much more. soo many people do it to change other people's lives. and what i think of this portcard that is very social design was the fact that this individual is letting us know that whether they are handicap or not. they are not weak. WE ARE NOT WEAK.
and i thnk that is jsuch a social design factor. to me... social design is making a difference. and this postcard is making a difference.
