Massive Change
Alex Steffen, 10 Dec 03

Massive Change. Nice name. Nice rhetoric:

"Design – the human capacity to plan and produce desired outcomes – has placed us at the beginning of a new, unprecedented period of human possibility, where all economies and ecologies are becoming global, relational, and interconnected.

"Nature is no longer a realm outside of our manipulation. We need to evolve a global society that has the capacity to direct and control the emerging forces in order to achieve the most positive outcome.

"We must ask ourselves, now that we can do anything, what will we do?"(Very reminiscent of Stewart Brand's "We are as gods, and might as well get good at it," there.)

Massive Change is the latest Bruce Mau project, an effort to create a public debate about the radical new possibilities of design and their implications. It's as yet a little short on actual product - for that you're better off hanging out at ThinkCycle - but definitely worth keeping an eye on.
