Abstract
As part of the liberation technologies project and of Stanford's Hasso Plattner Institute for Design (the "d.school") I have been a participant and an observer in a variety of courses and projects that are intended to serve goals of development and democracy in underserved areas of the world.  In this talk I will reflect on some of the lessons we have learned in that process, and on some of the underlying difficulties with current conceptions of Design for Good.

Terry Winograd is a co-leader of the Liberation Technology program at CDDRL and Professor of Computer Science in the Computer Science Department at Stanford University. His research focus is on human-computer interaction design, especially theoretical background and conceptual models. He directs the teaching programs and HCI research in the Stanford Human-Computer Interaction Group, and is also a founding faculty member of the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford.

Prof. Winograd was a founding member and former president of Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility. He is on a number of journal editorial boards, including Human Computer Interaction, ACM Transactions on Computer Human Interaction, andInformatica. Some of his publications includes Understanding Computers and Cognition: A New Foundation for Design (Addison-Wesley, 1987)and Usability: Turning Technologies into Tools (Oxford, 1992).

Terry Winograd received a BA in mathematics from The Colorado College in 1966 and Ph.D. in applied mathematics from M.I.T in 1970.
