This pairs very well with Geek Heresy by Kentaro Toyama -- how can we better think about design as something the people who have to live with the results can do, rather than some designers in a room somewhere or designers parachuting in for a weekend, running a workshop, and leaving the results? Manzini (and Toyama) think about and practice on-the-ground work that helps the people facing problems -- teachers, farmers, and so on -- build and sustain what works for them.

Excellent book, not for social innovation, but to explain the power of design to change our relations and the power of human society

Some provocative questions come up in this read. What will design look like 10 years from now?

“Design, in the most generic sense of the word, began over 2.5 million years ago when Homo habilis manufactured the first tools. Human beings were designing well before we began to walk upright. Four hundred thousand years ago, we began to manufacture spears. By forty thousand years ago, we had moved up to specialized tools.” 1 likes
“Collaborative associations are groups of people who work together to solve problems or open new possibilities (and who become co-producers of the results). Some examples of this category are groups of residents who transform an abandoned plot into a shared neighborhood garden; groups of people who love cooking and who use their skills to cook for a larger group, dining together in one of the members’ houses;” 0 likes
