The following are some of the themes addressed in the class responses:

  • power of analogies
  • how transparent technology is when it works
  • "no one size fits all"
  • training as specialists/experts vs generalists
  • renaissance teams of collaborators
  • computers as cognitive tools
  • integration of arts and technology
  • failure of design to be human-centric
  • similar drawings of computers for 1969 vs 1999

People varied about how well their studies allowed them to collaborate with people from different disciplines, but most desired this kind of interaction. Overall, the article was well-received by the class and stimulated reflection on individual's perception of design and his or her role in the future of design and technology.
