Risk of Solutionism in the IoT is squared to Solutionism in Web

Solutionism is doing things for the sake of things, or building things because you can. That may be ok if the risk is clear. The problem is that the world is a complex system with little predictability. Things happen. When building things that interact with real life, we should be cautious and reduce risk by only building things that serve deep needs. We propose to first do proper research on what is required to reduce the number of things to be build and thus reduce risk.

We propose simple tools such as "Jobs to be done" to make research accessible to everyone.
