  1. It shows that it is probably not good that most product development is focusing on technological issues. Personally I think it is far more important to focus on cultural values which probably better attracts people and at the same time makes a difference. Design can answer the important question WHAT. What kind of demand will a certain product create, what kind of problem is it solve? Technology will only answer the question HOW. How do we deliver this solution?
