Design of kindness

April 1, 2001: At the Hochschule der Künste in Berlin this winter a group of designers work on to shape friendliness. They develop projects for mobile multimedia that sometimes are not e-commerce or m-commerce but primarily serve as a social, emotional or cultural purpose. On Sunday, April the 1st, the group give short presentations in the form of sketches, scenarios and prototypes during the Mediamatic Salon at Society Baby.
