A Comprehensive Design Scientist

There's an entertaining article about Buckminster Fuller, who thought
of himself as a "comprehensive, anticipatory design scientist" rather
than an inventor, in this week's New Yorker magazine:

designing for behavioral change for the purposesof sustainability

This is a fascinating topic to me, in part because it runs into what feels
to me like a sort of knee-jerk resistance.

In the first place, let me say that I think it would be much better if
designers (and everybody else) got on top of the challenge of designing
products that are not energy hogs, to obviate the need to teach people how
to use their stuff so it doesn't waste energy doing nothing or to use it
more sparingly, or whatever.

Joel Spolsky claims the 'Program Manager' role does UI design... ????

This post and the reactions on the list demonstrate very clearly the need

UX work is been done by business analysts and developers without naming it
UX or anything similar.

When the perspective of the researcher is too far outside of the mainstream or what we often confuse with a 'position of objectivity' the validity of those findings will certainly suffer.

The way to make better software is through a focus on your customers,
a good deal of top-notch engineering, good design to be married with
that engineering, and an ability to market and sell the product.
That's the whole point: It's not about just users.
