The Critique of Design Thinking is a bit naive, but there is a lot in here which deserves support. Quite a few things similar to our Memefest workshop approaches. The idea that good design is potentially solving problems created by bad design is one of them. Still what's missing is an emphasis on decolonization:

This is really worrying if we don't find an alternative. Its interesting because the growing distrust to media was mostly visible in advertising first. Now media as such will become distrusted but with potentially severe consequences.

A necessary read on how machines, software and AI are changing the culture of photography and image

Invisible Images (Your Pictures Are Looking at You)
By Trevor Paglen

http://thenewinquiry.com/essays/invisible-images-your-pictures-are-looking-at-you/
