Today I am speaking with Susanne Bødker, professor of Human Computer Interaction at the Computer Science Department, University of Aarhus. She has been one of the founding mothers of Participatory Design and has focused throughout her career on thinking about the impacts of technology on people and society at large.


Today I am talking to Will Odom, design researcher at the School of Interactive Arts and Technology at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada. Will has made design his preferred mode of inquiry and uses carefully crafted artefacts to open opportunity spaces for alternative futures and to ask critical questions about which roles technology can have in positively shaping the human condition.


In my first conversation, I speak to Rob van Kranenburg. Rob is the founder of the IoT council, a network of people and a thinktank that organises discussions and events around the topic of the Internet of Things. He is considered one of the key influences in the field and for a long time has lended a more critical perspective to the debate.
