I was lucky enough thanks to Marco Manca to participate in a meeting by Opencare, an european project by scimpulse foundation took place in milano at wemake bringing together, doctors, makers and designers to develop new solutions for healthcare and more generally care.
The aim of this meeting was to open up a conversation channel between the care communities including healthcare and doctors in order to find practical ways to work together and involve citizens to participate in the discussions and projects.
Here follow some pictures of the meeting.

Users? what are they? Never mind we are the kings of the world!!!!! Are you?
All the following images come from the official windows.com website and were captured the 29th of July.
Ok, let’s imagine that for some reason you decide to get Windows ten, first thing I went to windows.com website, you find this welcoming line telling you how easy it is to get you free upgrade. Very simple, you need to use the “Get Windows 10” app! Ok, so I click to download the Get Windows 10 app, but it’s not a link. Somewhere on the page there surely is a download link for this easy app that I can download so I can download windows 10, mmm or is there? Well actually no this Get Windows 10 app is nowhere to be seen.
Well I eventually find a link to download an image file in orther to install Windows 10 and on this new page a new question arises, do you need to buy it? or is it free? Ah ok it’s free but I need to Shop now in order to buy it?
Ok eventually we managed to buy the product for free by shopping now, let’s move on, we have to choose what edition we want.
That should be simple enough, there is a select dropdown menu that allowes us to choose.
mmm ok, so what edition do I need? 10? 10KN, 10N 10 Single Language?
what does it even mean?????? Nowhere on the page there is any explanation regarding the meaning of the different editions, how am I supposed to choose???
I am always amazed at how hard and complicated Microsoft manages to make things which are really simple!!! I imagine they do this to reduce the number of people that will actually be using this trap, which is a good thing since windows 10 is such a privacy blunder that keeping people away from installing it is actually a very good thing.
