Wow, what a week of society-level issues in EID. We talked about world peace, climate change, the Ferguson and Staten Island police stories, and video games. Well, maybe video games don’t rise to the same level as the other ones, but still.
I think there was an underlying theme to these posts though. Human Factors can be a much more powerful discipline than we often realize. We can have a (positive) impact on many aspects of society that we don’t target. We spend time focusing on the UI of the latest smart phone app. Not that there is anything wrong with that, it is just that we can do so much more.
I guess I am asking that each of us allocate a little bit of our time and effort on the bigger pictures around us. Are you in?
