The first article on product design consisted of stories on how people attempted to design products for the "bottom 90%" of the population. Most product designers limit themselves to creating ideas for the top 10% of the population. The authors used examples of companies creating products that are inexpensive and mass produced. Many of these products are used in Africa to help the poor. The idea of making a computer that costs 100 dollars is also an example that was used. I believe that if people continue on focusing only on the rich, then the separation between the rich and poor will only grow. The growth of product designers who focus on the poor side of the population is very important for society to move in a positive direction to connect all of the world’s population. I agreed with the author’s attempt to show how this is important and I honestly had not put much thought into the concept previous to reading the article.
