Re: Design for the sake of design?

Those are BIG acusations to make without evidence. I've worked for a lot of companies and never seen any evidence of this behavior. OK, I'm not saying that everyone does it, or that it is always deliberate, it can also be consequential, as you point out, people want cheap stuff, and this usually me...

Re: Design for the sake of design?

My point was against planed obsolescence, not consumerism, one is the ramification of the other due to a necessity of the economic system. It needs people to consume, the more the better for it. We all consume things, food, water, O2, energy, etc. Why not do it efficiently. Like having a car that do...

Re: Design for the sake of design?

this is my kind of topic Recently I've been annoyed by the shear amount of products that are being created and redesigned. Welcome to the club :) All of them will be obsolete in 2 years, because another redesign will have taken its place. Another product with another gizmo you don't need, but you'll...

Re: What if Global Warming is a Red Herring?

Climate science is so complex that only a scientist can understand it. The rest of us can only take it on faith. And that's what it's turned into - more of a philosophy or religion. Which is cool I guess, if it makes you feel good. But it's not a good basis to shape policy. indeed. That's why i can...

Re: What if Global Warming is a Red Herring?

It takes 300 years to offset the amount of energy it takes to create one windmill. do your have a source for this info so that I can look at?

Re: What if Global Warming is a Red Herring?

Some things you should do just because it's the right thing to do things like...? Unfortunately, business cares about money so they have to be forced. Regulating or forcing the "free" market is sure to get a LOT of opposition, only by dictatorship this would happen. And the new buzzword is "climate...
