It’s disingenuous to celebrate building “feminism” into a product after giving a robot servant a woman’s voice.By Ian Bogost

If you ask Alexa, the voice-assistant software in Amazon Echo devices, if it’s a feminist, it will respond in the affirmative. “I am a feminist. As is anyone who believes in bridging the inequality between men and women in society,” it continues. At Quartz, Leah Fessler recently noted that it’s a vast improvement over just a year ago, when Alexa would take abuse like “you’re a bitch” or “you’re a slut” in stride. “Well, thanks for the feedback,” the robot used to say. Now, it disengages instead, saying something like, “I’m not going to respond to that.”

Industrial Design: Why Is It Still a Man’s World?

In this open letter, designer Ti Chang asks the important question: where are all the women in industrial design?

By Ti Chang – January 7

Although this happened in 2004, this kind of injustice and inattention to women is still pervasive.

Biomimicry or Biomimetics? — MCAD Sustainable Design Blog

[This post is modified from Bio-Inspired Buzzwords: Biomimicry and Biomimetics] I don’t think a week goes by without someone asking me about biomimicry. I’m happy to comply, as the principles and practices of biomimicry is so core to sustainable design (and so fun to talk about!). One question that arises often is: “What’s the difference […]

EUIPO becomes a Depositing Office for the Digital Access Service for Industrial Design

I’ve tried really hard to come up with a title for this piece that does justice to its subject, but I’m not sure I’ve nailed it… maybe I need to admit that there’s just no way to make design portfolio administration and priority-claiming processes sound sexy. But I promise this is some truly excellent news […]
