A good friend of _Geez_ and principal at a local design firm had a cover article in the current issue of Applied Arts. He argues, convincingly I think, for designers to employ their tools for good things like empathy and peace building.
The next issue of Geez is on the pros and cons of technology. What are the pros and cons of our computer-saturated culture? We can connect more: is this good for relationships or does it distance us from each other. Here’s a chance for would-be writers to submit their ideas.
Even from my vantage-point, an atheist working in the realm of faith (certainly an anomaly) I get it from both sides. The unbelievers are perplexed by my engagement with the community and why I would do it, while conversations within the faith community clearly develop barriers once I ‘out’ myself.
