Design for the First World

This design competition is a fantastic idea from a student at ITP in New York to reverse the established flow of international cultural transmission. Instead of trying to "aid" the Third World, tools like this create situations for designers in developing countries to help solve problems in the West.

This is a philosophy that I've been promoting for over a decade, so it's great to see it making its way towards popular culture.
