Hello, this is 33C3 „works for me“
works for me
A commonly used phrase by software developers to indicate that the bug reported by a user is not repeatable on their machine, and will therefore receive no more attention. Usually connotes a dismissive approach, where anything that is not visible immediately to the developer is „someone else’s problem“ and is therefore not worth fixing.
Like no other, the year 2016 pointed out how well „works for me“ works for us.
It does not. Mutual hate, envy, insensibility and exclusion have driven us apart.
Feeling isolated and threatened, we turn further against each other, take less care of each other and worry even more about ourselves. And yet, we are never alone: Excessive surveillance is now politically normalized, if not for all then at least for those who are different, intractable, foreign.
Let’s break this vicious circle.
Let’s get together and live our utopia.
Let’s strive for something that works for all of us.
And let’s fight those, who will not let us!
Welcome to the party! :-)
PS: You can also make the Design work for you…
