in the larger world, i worry that design is becoming over-engineered, that careful definitions draw too-tight boundaries, that the wrong questions are blithely being asked and answered, that the questions and paradigms themselves are subject to too little scrutiny.
i worry about losing the magic, the happenstance, the lightning strikes, in favor of the definable, the quantifiable.
some counterforces come to mind: trust, care, play. (all those point to vulnerability: yikes.) and so much comes down to relationships. not contracts, but relationships.
