These exemplars in the form of interface designs and underlying algorithms will be offered to designers, students, teachers, and entrepreneurs as a more humane and richly rewarding alternative to today’s online experiences.
KEYWORDS: pandemics, wicked challenges, second-order cybernetics, systemic change, ontological security, conversation, ontogenetic resilience, recursive feedback.
