Designed to control rather than enable / by Dan Lockton

As Cory Doctorow says, "Your home and life are increasingly full of devices that seek to control, rather than enable you." That, succinctly, is what this website's about: design as something to restrict and control the user, rather than empower and enable. Products that enable you to do less. Products that force you to interact with them in a way which (often) serves someone else's interest rather than your own.
