Does your “design thinking” start at the business model or is it bullshit?

If your business model is extractive, exploitative, and otherwise unethical to begin with, you’re not practicing design, you’re practicing decoration: the craft of disguising an otherwise unpalatable product or service to trick people into using (being used by) it.

Let’s #CleanUpTheWeb one web site at a time (starting with yours). Remove tracking devices from surveillance capitalists like Google, Facebook, etc., from your sites and tell people you’re doing it.

For lists of alternatives, see: goodreports.com/ switching.software

@markosaric Listening to audio book right now. Great book. And the whole Basecamp’s work is truly inspiring.

@aral wunderbucket.io now that’s a simplicity of launching and maintaining static:) maybe some good ideas there.

Here’s the video of my talk “Beyond surveillance capitalism: alternatives, stopgaps, Small Web, and Site.js.” from Creative Mornings Istanbul on Friday.

Edited to fix the audio sync issue, add captions, chapters, and links to all the mentioned tools, etc.

Enjoy + please share! :)


@aral another thing I am curious about - what about using data for humanitarian and development purposes? In what cases we should be encouraged to donate/sell our data?

@aral Hey, Aral. I have been following you for a while now on Twitter and you are also the reason I am here! Thank you for being and doing what you do...

I am Service Designer / Tech enthusiast, and I would love to contribute to more decentralised, ethical and democratic movement.

Do you think there are ethical ways today to build profitable businesses? If so, are you aware of any movements that consults small starting companies on how to build ethical yet profitable businesses?
