Technology plays a dominant part in shaping lives. We have seen how advances in technology have changed society beyond our imagination. As tech creators, it's time for us to take a step back and consider the impact of what we are building.
The Designated Dissenter is a card deck designed to spark conversations about the impacts of technology. They'll allow you to consider the externalities of tech from a human values perspective, and help foster open feedback culture within your teams.

I'm Shirley Lai, a graduate of Hyper Island's MA in Digital Management course. As part of my thesis, I researched tech and design ethics, and the ways organisation and team culture play a part in ethical conversations. This card deck is born out of an experiment for my thesis.
I’m also a digital Product Designer, who enjoys developing vision and strategy for digital products, workshop facilitation, and solving complex system problems. Discuss these topics with me, or find me on Twitter where I talk about tech ethics, UX design and UX writing. Tag me on Twitter if you use the TDD cards with your team!
