The Critical Engineering Manifesto #6

Number six of the Critical Engineering Manifesto states that we should take a certain approach when examining the relationships between human and device: to see the system as a “machine”. The word machine here is important because we see machines as something that can be fully understood and that we can gain complete control over, and therefore something we can exploit and hack.

Finding exploits in relationships and making hacks for new forms of interactivity with technology seems strange, but it’s what will enable us to think critically about and solve the current issues related to new technologies and how they affect us.
