For this milestone, you will brainstorm responses to your problem statement, and choose one design to move forward with. After two brainstorming sessions during which you will come up with at least 30 different ideas, you will choose three ideas to focus on in more detail: one radical idea that marks a significant change from the current situation
Brainstorm changes / new designs.
Storyboard one radical, one incremental, one in between.

2. According to Fiona Raby, what makes a prototype "work" in a _design_ context?
3. What does this tell you about the prototypes you will need to make in this class?
4. What is a _value fiction_? Give a brief definition and then give an example from the paper. Explain why this example is a value fiction.
5. Gaver & Martin outline six values that their designs are "meant to encourage." Identify three of these values and give a brief definition and/or example of each.
5.1. Value 1
5.2. Value 2
5.3. Value 3
6.

2.
1. Steup et al.'s article is unique in that it does not report on traditional user research nor propose a design project; instead the authors "analyze the discourse" of websites for data-driven farming startups. Why do Steup et al. take this approach? What motivates their research?
2. Briefly describe their approach to analyzing the discourse. What data do they collect? What is their sampling strategy? How did they analyze their data?
3. Steup et al. identify four future visions for data-driven farming. Identify each of the four visions by name, and give a brief definition or key exemplar for each vision.
3.1. Vision 1
3.2. Vision 2
3.3. Vision 3
3.4. Vision 4
4. At the start of the discussion section, Steup et al. write: "Rather than question the plausibility of these visions, we focus on the consequences for farming should these futurescome to pass." Why do you think they made this decision? What would be gained by focusing on consequences instead of plausibility?
5. Thinking across the reading for today as well as the readings from last week which are all about challenging the status quo in some way, identify one new question or takeaway you have from across the readings. Explain why this question/takeaway is important and make sure to connect it to at least _one other_ reading.
