I was taken on an intellectual ride that Disney would envy. Every turn was a surprise as I experienced new synaptic social connections previously unknown to me. WOW!  And it was FREE!

Thank you for this brilliant talk, and for providing new language to talk about social change as it relates to science and technology.

The metaphor of the park bench and how it relates to the lab bench was a memorable illustration of how design directly affects the experience of a physical object. In the case of scientific research, the design of the study and which cultural perspectives are included and excluded have a direct affect on how the research is perceived and applied.
