In class we discussed our observation assignements and since mine was such a vast topic – the computer itself – we talked at length about technology and notions of progress. We talked about haptic response and the recreation of tactile experiences despite technological advances as an important notion in interaction design. I questioned the progress that seperates us from the natural world and our instincts. I feel cities are in a constant battle against the natural world and technology itself should not be taken as a given – there are many pleasures in seeminlgy mundane tasks – but beyond this simply becuase the technology exists does not necessarily make it progress.
