For planners, designers, and anyone with an interest in the future, this book is a rich resource of inspiration, ideas, and guiding principles as well as sharply observed cautionary tales. It suggests that what the tech revolution most needs, and may already be moving toward, is a sense of purpose. Bill S. Kowinski San Francisco Chronicle Thackara has built an intricate and compelling case for the continuing impact of local action in a networked world Magazine An excellent new book John Thackara, long a major force in design, now takes on an even more important challenge: making the world safe for future inhabitants.

We need, he says, to design from the edge, to learn from the world, and to stop designing for, but instead design with. If everyone heeded his prescriptions, the world would indeed be a better place.

Required reading—required behavior. Don Norman Nielsen Norman Group, author of Emotional Design The future is created at the intersection of business, technology, design, and culture. In the Bubble is an insightful and delightful explanation of this nexus and of how each force affects the others.

Designers often miss a great deal in their educations about the real people who will use and inhabit their work. In the Bubble is just such a macroscope, a deeply reflective meditation on the underlying changes in the structure of globalized society, and a revelation about what designers can do to make that shifting structure more robust and sustainable. Herz author of Joystick Nation If there is one pervasive criticism of global capitalism that cuts across all ideologies, it is this: goods have become more important and are treated better than people.

We are producing higher quality computers than children. These inspired and innovative technologies return people to the heart of the world and help them create a fulfilling life.

With not a whisper of evangelistic zeal, In the Bubble offers an engaging narrative as well as design principles that speak to sustainability, joy, and quality of life in increasingly complex times. When you are wondering what to design, you will want to pick it up and browse through it again, to remind you of all the new possibilities for design.

When you worry if your design is good enough, you will want to check through the passages that you have marked, to be sure that you have provided for all the complexities that count.

He is able to take in the most disparate events, locations, trends, and apparent minutiae and deliver back a synthesis of the way the world moves for the use of designers and of those who use design as a powerful life-forming tool.

And to help us swallow what might otherwise be too abstract a meal, he seves it to us with parables that make the book not only an enriching, but also a fun read. I agree! In the Bubble is the first strong, thoroughly documented statement on the importance of the local and the embedded in our fluid, hyper-connected world. A fundamental contribution to a new design culture.
