Jutta, thanks for sharing! J


Essentually inclusive design defines the difference between Universal Design (Wikipedia) <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_design>  that starts with the technology capability and based on perceptual design, and Human-Centered Design (Wikipedia) <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human-centered_design>  that starts with the human need and based on experience design. Design is the bridge between information and understanding, built upon three pillars of security, performance, and accessibility. If you do not understand the information then it is just noise, and if any one of the pillars is weak then people are put at risk. However, it seems that big business has reduced our lives to an algorithm (The Globe and Mail), <https://www.theglobeandmail.com/technology/the-algorithm-method-programming-our-lives-away/article1315842/>  and diversity design (IFTTT, If not this then that) has furthered the marginalization of people with disabilities.


Great article. I look forward to reading more!
