"Androids dream of real sheep" (or more boringly)  "The implications of the things we make"

BY JACK SHEPPARD
@ VOL 23 ON AUG 02, 2018

Let’s talk about what it means to be an empathetic being, the effect technology is having on our ability empathise with each other and what we can do to understand each other better, communicate and design more ethical ‘things’ that help people be people.
