[anthrodesign] Don Norman: Technology First, Needs Last

Great reflexions, but I strongly disagree with the basic assertion.
What gave birth to that "Technology first"? Airplane for what? Radio
for what?

A miracle? Or an accident? Well, accidents did give rise to
technologies in the past, but none of those mentioned in the article.
The biggest missing thing here is that no technology comes up in a

While I’m not sure if it’s an ad or an attempt at a B2B viral video it’s still somewhat interesting nonetheless.
