Designing for Cuba: Necessary In(ter)vention

April 11, 2008 lecture by Gwendolyn Floyd and Joshua Kauffman for the Stanford University Human Computer Interaction Seminar (CS547). This lecture shares regional’s recent in-field Cuban research that spans the socio-technological, the political, and the top-secret. It reveals how their research led to the design of a simple and affordable digital device that would potentially accelerate Cuban social change. It also discusses how an understanding of Cuba’s development in a technologically walled garden offers us the chance to consider this closed-system metaphor for how the world is increasingly accepting itself to be.

One Response to “Designing for Cuba: Necessary In(ter)vention”

  1. John Scott Says:

    Incredible. There are so many good ideas and phenomenons in Cuban society and economy. I can easily imagine that the Cuban government can gradually retreat from intimidating practices and create a state which retains the non-democratic socialism but at the same improve the standard of living by hearing to people, e.g. monitoring the intranet.
