Looking for a pledge, or ideas for same, concerning designing interactions

Hi folks,

The context for this request is the possibility that
I may resume the teaching of a methodology that can be
used to help designers build interactive systems that
more powerfully lead users to satisfying ends, but
that *could* be used in a strongly perverse way.

I would like to hear of examples of, or even your ideas
for, a pledge you might agree with and to sign up for.

"Military Mistake Caused Data Leak"

Shouldn't the US Army document management software have a _working_
black ink button instead of the disappearing black ink button?

I wonder how many millions of $$$ will be spent to prevent this kind of
"human error" in the future.

Hey Dave,

the right decisions and risks - esp. betting big on design.

btw... IBM lotus notes design team is taking usability survey of their
forthcoming product design. On one of the usability forums, I received this

reboot7: Copenhagen.dk, June 10-11

reboot 7.0
June 10-11

reboot is the european meetup for the practical visionaries who are building tomorrow one little step at a time, using new models for creation and organization -- in a world where the only entry barrier is passion.
reboot is two days in june filled with inspiration, perspective, good conversations and interesting people.

This year¹s theme is the new ways ahead. After more than 10 years of old ways of creation, old values, and old models for communicating and organizing ourselves, new ways are emerging. That is what reboot7 is about.
